Hunger Reaches Beyond the Holiday Season in Indiana



Putting food on the holiday table is especially difficult this year for those who are struggling to make ends meet in Indiana.

A reduction in food assistance benefits last month meant about 36-dollars less in food stamp benefits per month for a family of four.

Tim Keane, who heads the Second Harvest Foodbank of Central Indiana, says that's resulted in longer lines at food pantries and soup kitchens…

Keane says hunger in Indiana is widespread, with one in six adults and one in four children considered 'food insecure,' unsure whether they'll have enough food for regular daily meals.

Hoosiers are being encouraged to contribute to the holiday food drives going on around the state, or to volunteer time or money to help those in need.
