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).

Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank is honored to be a recipient of the Meijer Simply Give program! This is our sixth year of partnering with Meijer Corporation and the Noblesville store.

Their Simply Give program allows us to donate $10 in the store and receive $30 in food cards we can use to purchase needed food for our programs.

We have a goal to raise $25,000 by Dec. 7. Your donations will help us reach our $25,000 goal and bless the Food Bank with $75,000 in food cards to be used in 2018!

Donations can also be made in the Noblesville store through Dec. 30, which will also result in matching Meijer donations through Dec. 30 ($10 becomes $20).

28,150 of our Hamilton County residents fight food insecurity daily. This means 1 in 10 residents of Hamilton County are food insecure. Individuals and families dealing with food insecurity deal with difficult questions such as, “Do I buy food to feed my family or do I pay my rent?"

We can all do something to help end hunger here in Hamilton County. Please take the #EmptyPlateChallenge today!
