Poverty in Indianapolis —

In Indianapolis, 18,000 children are routinely hungry. Eight out of ten Indianapolis Public School students are on free or reduced lunches.

Households undergoing a crisis (such as loss of job or income, sudden illness, or high medical bills) make up 60% of all households receiving food.

About 50% of food pantry clients are children.

One of the busiest times of year for a food pantry is during the summer since school breakfast and lunch programs are not offered.

On average, The Lord’’s Pantry at Anna’’s House provides groceries to 200 families each week.
