“Many businesses and service clubs have canned food drives during the holiday season for food pantries,” said Cara Culp, SWCD Outreach Specialist. “This program takes that same concept of giving to those in need and moves it to the summer months using fresh produce instead of nonperishables.”
Two organizations have committed to help launch the Adopt a Food Pantry program. The Sheridan Rotary Club will donate produce once a month this summer and will deliver it to Mama’s Cupboard and the Sheridan Community School Food Pantry. BLASTmedia in Fishers will also have produce drives once a month this summer and will deliver the donations to Come To Me Food Pantry, also in Fishers.
