INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WEHT) – The Salvation Army, in collaboration with Midwest Food Bank, will pack an additional 5,000 boxes of food on Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium to help Hoosier families in need.

In April, 10,000 food boxes were packed at the stadium and distributed to food pantries across the state. With many communities seeing a rise in families seeking food assistance, The Salvation Army is using funds from a recent Lilly Endowment grant to purchase enough food to fill another 5,000 boxes.

Volunteers from Midwest Food Bank and The Salvation Army will work side-by-side with Lucas Oil Stadium staff and Indiana National Guard members to fill and prepare for distribution the food boxes on Tuesday. 

Two Men and a Truck will start distributing the boxes to food pantries on Wednesday including in Vincennes and Evansville.
