Donate Volunteer About In Need of Assistance


April 2023


Dear Friends of the Hobart Food Pantry,

As Spring turns into Summer, I would like to thank all our community once again for your generous support of the Hobart Food Pantry.  Without your support and donations, we would not be able to continue serving our families in need.  For the Easter holiday, we were able to provide food packages for 180 families, which included a ham or turkey and other perishable and non-perishable items! 

We will once again have two food drives this year which will benefit the Hobart Food Pantry. 

First, the US Postal Service will hold their nationwide food drive on May 13.  Letter carriers will pick up donations you leave at your mailbox which will then be brought to the food pantry.  You should be receiving a notification in the mail with more details! 

Also, the annual Hobart Kiwanis Food Drive will be held this Fall, Saturday, September 16.  This is our largest food drive of the year and helps to replenish our shelves with many needed items.  More information to come!! 

We are also appreciative of the many food drives that churches and businesses organize throughout the year, as well as the School City of Hobart and all of their assistance with classroom food drives.

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.  With the increase in food prices, our operating costs have increased dramatically over 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.  With your kindness and donation, we will be able to continue to serve those that need assistance. 

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 our website (www.hobartfoodpantry.org) or by mailing your check to the Hobart Food Pantry, P.O. Box 394, Hobart, IN  46342.  Any amount is appreciated!
