Mt. Carmel Church Benevolence Fund 


The benevolence fund is intended as a source of last resort, to be sought only when the family or individual requesting assistance has explored all other possibilities of help from family, friends, savings, investments, or any other resources. It is intended to be a temporary help during a time of crisis.  Assistance from the benevolence fund is intended to be a one-time gift.  Please submit your request through our application process.  


CAFE’s Pull-up Pantry

CAFE has partnered with Gleaners Food Bank to provide a pull-up pantry for Far Eastside residents. Food boxes will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Simply drive up to our office 8902 E 38th St, during the hours of 2 pm-5 pm and one of our staff members will place a food box directly into your car. Food boxes are limited and on a first come first serve basis.

Gleaners, Indy Hunger Network, and 913 Sports

Partnering on delivery service. If you know someone who cannot access a food pantry because they are seniors, pregnant, immunocompromised, or have been asked to stay home by a physician, this program will deliver a box of emergency food to their homes (in Marion County). To request a food delivery, clients can text “Gleaners” to 55433 or call 317-742-9111.


Pending further direction from the federal government, the State of Indiana (FSSA) is exempting able-bodied adults without dependents so that SNAP (food stamp) benefits will continue. Individuals who had previously timed out of benefits can apply and should be approved.
