TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Terre Haute Catholic Charities is in the midst of the largest food distribution ever.
The distribution of food boxes began today in Parke County and will continue in Terre Haute next week. Items that each household receives include assorted meats, dairy, fresh produce, and pantry items.
Providing help, creating hope and serving all. That’s what Catholic Charities has continued to do in the Wabash Valley over the last 40 years.
“We do all that we can, not only now during the pandemic and through all of those job layoffs and furloughs that people have been going through but even before the pandemic and we will continue after the pandemic as well,” stated Jennifer Buell, assistant agency director for Terre Haute Catholic Charities.
The charity’s next food distribution is set for October 29th from 4-6 p.m. at the Vigo County fairgrounds, with help from the Coronavirus Assistance Program and the Feeding America organization.
“We are planning on 2,000 boxes of food for households in the Vigo county area,” Buell said. “So another very large distribution and as you can imagine just the planning and coordination for that event is going to be huge as well.”
