Online map can help Hoosiers find food assistance


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An interactive online statewide map can help Indiana residents seeking food assistance find what they need.

The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration announced Friday it had developed the map in partnership with the state’s food banks, the Indy Hunger Network and the food bank group Feeding Indiana’s Hungry.

The map shows two types of organizations, food pantries and meal sites. Food pantries are locations where Hoosiers can pick up groceries to prepare and use at their homes. Meal sites serve packed meals, ready to take home and eat.
