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.
