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.”
“Our Pantry was featured picking up 720 dozen eggs at Gleaners Food Bank with the press following our box truck back to our Pantry. This was part of a promotion for the Hatch Program. By buying a dozen medium eggs at Krogers, you contribute towards Kroger’s donation of eggs to food pantries throughout Central Indiana. You’ll see 3 of our client families interviewed and receiving eggs along with our warehouse, shopping area and volunteers. And, we’re still giving out eggs to thrilled clients.”
Grand Re-Opening Celebration
On Sunday, June 7, 2015 we celebrated our new facility with donors, volunteers, churches, businesses and community members attending. We enjoyed a ribbon-cutting ceremony, tours and refreshments. Thanks to all our guests who made this a special day.
What’s New at the Pantry?
After several months at our new location, 211 Commerce Drive, Franklin, we’re serving more households than ever before. June 2015 set a record serving 1523 households. This is 87% more served than the prior June. We had our biggest day ever on July 6 serving 102 families. According to a recent client survey, feedback is overwhelmingly positive. Repeatedly, we heard the new pantry is faster, offers more food selection and interactions with friendly, helpful volunteers.
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 meats
- Peanut butter & Jelly
- Breakfast cereal
- Toilet paper or Paper towels
