Pack the Pantries

June 9, 2021
Pack the Pantry

Help Purdue Extension “Pack the Pantries” in 2021.                            

Purdue Extension needs your help to Pack the Pantries during the 2021 Hamilton County 4-H Fair. Local food pantries are struggling to meet the needs of families and individuals. Through a display at the 4-H Fair and collection for donations, we want to raise awareness about hunger and educate people about the importance of good nutrition and family mealtime. In the last two years we have raised more than 5,000 pounds of food for Hamilton County Families.

We have 40 food programs in Hamilton County and they are struggling to meet the needs of local families and individuals. There are more than 26,000 people   in Hamilton County who are food insecure.  Less than half qualify for government assistance. Help Purdue Extension raise awareness about hunger and educate families about the importance of good nutrition and family mealtime.

YOU can help!

Two Donation Options:

1. Donate a monetary amount

2. Donate canned good, dry products, cereals, etc.

Donations are accepted until July 12 at Purdue Extension Hamilton County:
2003 Pleasant Street, Noblesville, IN  46060.

Donated items will be on display at the 4-H Fair. 
All Donations will go to the Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank.
