INDIANAPOLIS – With tens of thousands of Hoosiers losing their jobs, several organizations have been working together for weeks during the ongoing pandemic to make sure no one goes hungry.

The Salvation Army and Midwest Food Bank packed 5,000 boxes of food Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Salvation Army paid for the food with a grant from the Lilly Endowment.

“We're working harder than ever to make sure that there's no Hoosier that will go hungry during this pandemic and we can't do that alone and we need your support,” said John Whitaker of the Midwest Food Bank.

Two Men and a Truck have volunteered their trucks to deliver those boxes to food banks across central Indiana.
