KOKOMO, Ind. (WLFI) - Food Finders is partnering with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to help stop hunger in Indiana.

In three years, the two organizations will host over 500 mobile food pantries.
At every event, people are welcomed to take food and look at medical insurance options provided by Anthem.
The pantry will visit sixteen different counties throughout North Central Indiana every month.

Food Finders CEO Katy Bunder says this will reach thousands of families.

"The clients can determine if they want this Medicare product, and then Food Finders can make sure everybody gets food every month on a regular schedule," said Bunder.

The pantry will serve 1.4 million pounds of food for 100,000 people.

Anthem Regional Vice President Rob Cleary says their company will be donating $810,000 worth of food.

"We're making a significant financial contribution as part of the partnership, and a lot of the reason is food insecurity, not having enough to eat is an obviously a huge mission with Food Finders, but it's really important to Anthem too," said Cleary.
