The Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County Indiana
works to alleviate hunger in Johnson County.
Matthew 25:35 “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty
and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.”
Winter Weather- The Interchurch Food Pantry is open regular hours during winter weather unless absolutely necessary to be closed. A closing would be posted on Channel 6 or Channel 13.
The Pantry is serving many more people.
The Interchurch Food Pantry served significantly more people in 2014 compared to 2013.
2014: 12,093 families
2013: 8,831 families
This is a 37% increase on a year to year basis. Actually though, the increase began in August 2014 when the Pantry began allowing families to visit twice/month rather than once/month. From August 2014 and forward, it’s been a 76% increase. That means on a typical day the Pantry serves 50-70 families and is open 6 days per week.
Frequently, we’re asked what’s needed at the Pantry. We love any food or hygiene items that are donated. In particular, we need:
- Canned pasta
- Canned tuna
- Macaroni & cheese
- Canned fruits or vegetables
- Toilet paper
Volunteers- The Pantry is unique in being staffed totally by volunteers, no paid staff. A sign at the Pantry captures “Volunteers are not paid not because they are worthless but because they are priceless.” We couldn’t do what we do without each and every one of our volunteers!
- Receiving and stocking
- Truck driving
- Truck unloading
- Preparing orders- distribution
- Intake and reception
People who would like to volunteer can do so via “contact us” or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 317-736-5090.
