Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank

Working Together WITH YOU to feed Hamilton County

What is the Difference between a Food Bank and a Food Pantry?

They have a lot in common since both are dedicated to helping those in need. A food bank works to collect food and support for food pantries. A food pantry gives out food directly to people in need. At HCHFB we are committed to keeping Hamilton County food pantries’ shelves stocked year round.

Food Drives & Volunteers Needed

History of HCH

plantingseedsHamilton County Harvest Food Bank, Inc. (HCH) was established in 2009 when several of the food pantries in the county joined together and set up a new non-profit entity to assist all Hamilton County pantries with their food inventory needs. The Noblesville White River Christian Church (WRCC) provided the newly formed food bank warehouse space in their building at 1605 N. 10th St. in Noblesville. (same location as the WRCC Food Pantry). Since our inception, we have collected and distributed over 275,000 lbs. of food for local pantries; this past year alone has seen a 53% increase in the amount of food required. A majority of our food will come through the school holiday drives, but more and more Hamilton County businesses and organizations are now helping out (over 37 donors this year have helped with either food drives or collection points). All donated food will be sorted and distributed to more than 28 local pantries at no cost to them. Many of the same volunteers who work in their local pantries will graciously donate their time to serve as food bank volunteers (HCH is manned 100% by volunteers).

HCH Food Bank needs $4,000 to meet our goal for "Meating the Need." PLEASE consider being a part of this wonderful project! The 4-H members raise the cattle, the community donates the money, and the food pantries get the beef to share with those in need throughout Hamilton County. Visit the www.hchfoodbank.org website to give. Donate $500 and be on the "supporters" beef banner in the cattle barn. Donate $125 and be on the "supporters" pork banner. A donation of any amount will help!
