Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana was founded in a 3-1/2 car garage in 1980 by a group of people concerned about the growing problem of hunger in Indianapolis. Early in 1981, Gleaners received a grant from the Lilly Endowment to network with Indiana communities that wanted to develop food banks. Today, nine food banks operate to provide food to charities that feed the hungry. As Gleaners enters its 25th year, the food bank has distributed more than 173 million pounds of food and critical grocery products to charities that serve the people in need of emergency food assistance.
