The Food Pantry is open the 2nd and last Saturdays of each month from 10:15 am to 12:00 noon; doors open at 9:45 am. “Shoppers” are not asked about their income or required to show an I.D., and they are allowed to choose for themselves what they prefer to eat.
Food to stock the shelves comes from Gleaners Food Bank, the Indianapolis Fruit Company, a yearly food drive of Speedway Christian Church, purchases at Aldi’s and other groceries, and donations from individuals. In addition to food donations, it will take about $800 per month to purchase the additional food needed. These funds come from the church budget, an annual fund-raising effort, designated gifts from individuals, profits of the Thrift Shop, and a grant from the Canfield Trust Fund.
