Food Bank
A program to help feed hungry children in northwest Indiana during the summer months when they are no longer receiving free or reduced meals at school returns next week. Food Bank of Northwest Indiana Communication/Advocacy Manager Megan Sikes told the Region News Team they are once again partnering with Meals on Wheels to provide lunches to 15 sites, up from just five last year, starting on Monday, June 16th, in East Chicago, Gary, Hobart and Merrillville.
Sikes says you can find a full listing of locations as well as the hours they will be serving meals at the Food Bank's website http://www.foodbanknwi.org/
The program is open to all children 18 and under.  For sites in other areas not sponsored by the Food Bank, please call 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (for Spanish speakers).
