FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- A Fort Wayne food bank is making sure senior citizens have access to healthy food.
Community Harvest Food Bank hosts a SeniorPak drive-by food distribution every other Wednesday.
The distribution starts around 10 a.m., but some cars arrive as early as 6:30 a.m. to line up.
Hundreds go through the line to receive items like fresh produce.
The food bank needs about 10-15 volunteers to help out on these Wednesdays, but will also accept help any day of the week.
Executive President Carmen Cumberland says there are other ways people can volunteer if they cannot come in person.
“You can make a donation on our website, or just being an advocate for food hunger because we never know who is in need,” she says. “And during these times, the face of hunger would really surprise you.”
Community Harvest also hosts a weekly drive-through distribution for all age groups every Saturday.
The food bank serves nine counties in northeast Indiana.
