Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank



Started on October 1, 2021
2 year commitment

Food banks and food pantries play a key role in meeting the nutritional needs of low-income children and families, who have less access to nutritious, affordable foods and are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diet-related disease. Our food bank partners make sure that times of sacrifice don’t also mean sacrificing good health.

Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank will receive support from PHA to implement a comprehensive nutrition ranking system over the next two years. PHA will provide technical assistance to help Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank understand the nutritional quality of its inventory, enhancing food equity for the communities they serve.

Catholic Charities Terre Haute provides comprehensive services that not only meet our neighbors’ most essential and basic need for nutritious food, but we nourish the minds, bodies and spirits of our neighbors by meeting their needs for safe shelter, quality youth programming and critical human and household needs. In west central Indiana, one in six people is food insecure (without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food), and more than 10,000 children go to bed hungry. As a member of Feeding America, the largest domestic emergency food bank network, Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank collects, warehouses and distributes more than 4 million pounds of food annually to more than 85 soup kitchens, food pantries, senior centers, youth centers and other charitable agencies in 7 counties. Through collaboration with key community partners, the unwavering support of our donors and the dedication of our volunteers, Catholic Charities provides help and creates hope for our community’s children, adults, families and seniors. We serve all without financial regard, no matter their social, economic, religious, racial or ethnic background.

Low-income people are at increased risk for both food insecurity and obesity
