May 26, 2023
In late April Co-Alliance partnered with Land O’Lakes to make a massive donation of 40,000 lbs. Of macaroni and cheese to Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana. That macaroni and cheese will go on to be distributed to 164 partner agencies in 8 Indiana counties.

This donation is part of our Planting The Seeds For Food Security campaign which was created to support food security in our rural communities. This month on the podcast we sat down with Robby Tompkins, Director of Philanthropy for Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana, to learn more about the organization and the work they do to serve thousands.

Second Harvest is committed to closing the gap and resource insecurity by providing food and non-food resources, advocating for those facing insecurity, and providing nutrition education. As a member of Feeding America, they have access to food and other essential resources. They receive donated food from local communities, grocery stores and suppliers, and is then able to distribute that food through mobile distribution, such as tailgate events, neighborhood and small community distributions and agency partners. They're able to get food directly to our neighbors through nonprofit organizations such as churches and food pantries that distribute food, meals, and other resources to increase access for as many neighbors in need as possible.

Robby's work entails more than feeding people. He strives to address the root cause of hunger and find ways to alleviate that issue.
