Donate Volunteer About In Need of Assistance


Dear Friends of the Hobart Food Pantry:

On behalf of the volunteers at the Hobart Food Pantry, we would like to extend our sincerest wishes to all our friends and partners for the upcoming holidays and for a safe and healthy 2024!

We are a 501 (c)(3) and a 100% volunteer organization serving the Hobart community!! We do not receive any government assistance for our food pantry and rely entirely on donations from our community!

We are grateful for all the generous support from our community. This year, both the US Postal Drive in May and the Kiwanis Food Drive in September were more successful than we could have imagined and helped us to restock our shelves! We have also received many food and monetary donations from local businesses, churches and other organizations who have held food drives for us throughout the year, as well as the School City of Hobart schools. However, we are always in need of extra assistance, especially during the holidays.

We are now serving approximately 180 families on a weekly basis. We distribute to our families in need every week of the year, solely with volunteer labor. During the holidays, we serve upwards of 250 families. Besides the non-perishable donations of food, it takes over $12,000 a month to keep the Pantry running smoothly. Our costs to operate the pantry have increased dramatically, especially with the increase in grocery prices in the past couple of years. With monetary donations we purchase the milk, eggs and meat, plus personal care items needed for our families. These are items not typically donated to us.

We would like to thank you for your continued support. If you are not a donor, we are asking you to get involved by donating to the Hobart Food Pantry through your annual gift-giving or through your time to volunteer with distribution or workdays at the pantry. We are open Tuesday and Thursday, 8:00-10:00 a.m. for distribution to our families and on Wednesday we sort donations and stock shelves, 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. You can make a positive and lasting difference in our community through your monetary or time donation!

Please visit us at www.hobartfoodpantry.org to make your donation or mail your donation to the Hobart Food Pantry, P.O. Box 394, Hobart, IN 46342.
