Who We Help
|Who Does the River Bend Food Pantry Help?
Our service is available to anyone living in Posey County, Indiana, or any transients who are working within the county on a short term basis. The only requirement to receive food at the pantry is to have a photo I.D. and starting in 2016, a current utility bill. Anyone meeting those requirements will be offered assistance. We provide households with 2-3 days of emergency food supplies once per month. A household that is in a more dire situation may visit the Black Township Trustee’s Office to ask for special assistance. The township trustee’s can then call the food pantry to request a special second order for that household.
In 2013, we served 6,859 individuals, followed in 2014, where we served 8,211 individuals. We anticipate that our numbers will continue to increase.
