INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration announced Friday the creation of a statewide, interactive map that will help Hoosiers seeking food assistance. The map is online and will be featured at www.fssa.in.gov. It can be used on desktop/laptop computers and mobile devices.
“Many Hoosiers’ situations have changed as a result of our state’s important and necessary response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic,” said Jennifer Sullivan, M.D., M.P.H., FSSA Secretary. “We know there is a significant need for families – many of whom have never needed assistance before. We hope this tool helps them locate resources to meet their food and nutrition needs during this crisis and in the future.”
The map shows food pantries and meal sites. Food pantries are locations where Hoosiers can pick up groceries to prepare and use at their homes. Meal sites serve packed meals, ready to take home and eat.
FSSA is actively working with food pantries, food banks, and community kitchens across the state to track which are open and is updating the map accordingly.
