The Food Bank of Northern Indiana is located in South Bend, IN and serves the counties of St. Joseph, Elkhart, Marshall, LaPorte, Kosciusko and Starke. In 2023, FBNI distributed nearly 9.5 million pounds. Today, 12.4% of the residents of northern Indiana are food insecure, including 17.5% children. They don't know when they will eat their next meal. Hunger is a silent epidemic. When all of our residents have food security and access to nutritious foods, we will be even better physically and mentally prepared to take on life’s challenges.

ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
