John Elliott, President/CEO of Gleaners Food Bank, joins us to share the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on hungry Hoosiers. Gleaners experienced a 2 to 4 times surge in need while having staff severely cut and had to rapidly shift their operations.

On a yearly basis, hundreds of thousands of hungry Hoosiers depend on food and other critical grocery products provided by Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. Gleaners supplies items to hunger relief agencies and schools throughout 21 counties in central and southeastern Indiana.
