BLOOMINGTON, IN – Hoosier Hills Food Bank received a $1,000 donation from Woodforest Charitable Foundation.

Hoosier Hills Food Bank has been feeding families through a network of 100 outreach charities in Bloomington, Indiana and five surrounding counties since 1983.  The Food Bank’s partner agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, youth programs, shelters, and senior feeing programs.  “Woodforest’s support has never been more important as we work to alleviate hunger and reduce food waste in south central Indiana,” said Julio Alonso, Executive Director of Hoosier Hills Food Bank.  “The lives of 25,000 Hoosiers are impacted by the agencies that we supply with food, and we remain dedicated to ensuring that they do not go hungry.  We greatly appreciate the Foundation’s partnership in the continuing fight against hunger.” 

Hoosier Hills Food Bank distributed a record 3.1 million pounds of food in 2009 including over 785,000 pounds from local retail donors.  An investment of just $1 is enough to help the Food Bank distribute 5 meals to the hungry citizens in south central Indiana.
