Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Indiana Helps Fight Food Insecurity in the Region and Around the State

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Indiana Tuesday announced it would commit $661,000 dollars over the next three years to four food banks in the state, including Food Bank of Northwest Indiana. Through this multi-year support from Anthem, Food Bank of Northwest Indiana will be able to secure more than 648,000 pounds of food, serve more than 540,000 meals, and better assist the community through initiatives or programs such as its Mobile Market food distributions. With each Mobile Market, the Food Bank serves approximately 250 to 500 households.
“We have been a vital source of food assistance for Hoosiers in northwest Indiana for nearly 40 years and we will continue to work toward creating a community free of hunger,” said Victor Garcia, President and CEO of The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana. “Our work with Anthem is part of our approach in collaborating with members of the community to help individuals in need. Ongoing financial support is critical to our success in meeting the ever-changing needs of our community. With this multi-year partnership, the Food Bank is better positioned to plan for and respond to the food insecurity needs of our friends and neighbors in Lake and Porter counties.” We have a link for more information about the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana at Adams Radio Cares at the Community dropdown menu on our website.
