Food bank says more help needed

November 15, 2010

Indianapolis-based Gleaners Food Bank, which serves 21 counties in central and southeastern Indiana, is asking for more help to feed hungry families. A food bank official said more than 200,000 Hoosiers are facing hunger. Visits to food pantries are up 30 percent to 40 percent due to the poor economy, said Mike Miller, chief operating officer of Gleaners.
