Popsie's Pantry, the Jewish community's food pantry, continues to be a vital program serving the most vulnerable populations in the greater Indianapolis area. In 2014, our food pantry reached over 2,110 individuals. Approximately 35 percent of those individuals are children under the age of 18 and an additional 19 percent are seniors over the age of 65.
The need for this vital program continues to increase. In 2014, the demand for access to the pantry exceeded our capacity. As a result, over 100 families were unable to access it to help fill their own pantries.
What can you do to help? Adopt Popsie's Pantry for a week. Help us meet the needs of the families in our community.
