The Food Banks energy and expertise, along with the support of the food industry, private contributors, United Way of the Wabash Valley and countless volunteers have helped many to choose between paying for medicine or food, prevent more children from going to school with empty stomachs, and feed more adults so they can be able to work and sustain their families.
