Second Harvest Hands Out Food
Feeding the Hungry in Delaware County, IN
FREE PRESS REPORT
MUNCIE, INDIANA - Hundreds of people showed up for free food at the Second Harvest tailgate in the the old Borg Warner parking lot on Thursday.
Many were like Steve who lives with his mother and survives on what benefits they earned when they worked.
The lines of cars in the lot were not those of workers making transmissions, people who live in poverty or near it and like the fresh fruit, vegetables and other commodities the food bank hands out.
Second Harvest had food for 1,000 families but the line had about 100 more that went home hungry. One in four children live in poverty in Indiana, and many more go hungry in eastern Indiana.
So support Second Harvest and the work they do.
