Given the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses and agencies around the country, Indiana food banks are asking that the state government would increase their budget from $300,000 annually to $1.5 million. The food banks complain that their services increased greatly in 2020 on account of the pandemic against their normal yearly outputs.

Executive Director of Feeding Indiana’s Hungry, Emily Weikert, said the $1.5 million is requested for two years would not total the needs of the food banks, but it would go a long way to helping them run their activities. Feeding Indiana’s Hungry witnessed 60% more food distribution in 2020 than they did the previous year, while Midwest Food Bank experienced 30% more distribution over the usual 90,000 people they feed every month.
