FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana is seeing long lines for food handouts on Saturday mornings.
Community Harvest Food Bank director Jane Avery says they’re serving more and more people, as about 600 people stand in line every Saturday morning waiting for food.
She says more than half of the food they give away to families is produce. Avery says people come not only because they need produce, but because they want the produce, along with the other food they have to offer.
“[It’s] For kids to learn, for people to work, for elderly people's medicine to work better and that kind of thing. So that's the really good news, that they come here with that need and we fill that need,” she said.
Community Harvest Food Bank serves nine counties throughout Northeast Indiana.
