Food rescue and hunger relief: Food that might otherwise go to waste is rescued
from grocery stores, wholesalers, restaurants and hotels and used to create hot,
nutritious meals to feed the hungry. Volunteers deliver those meals, free of charge, to
75 social services agencies in central Indiana. In 2014, more than 900,000 meals were
prepared and delivered. Second Helpings is on track to increase that number to
1 million meals this year.
Culinary job training: More than 500 unemployed and underemployed adults
have graduated from a free 10-week intensive training course that helped them learn
the skills needed to be successful culinary professionals. Each student is eligible for
five credit hours toward a culinary arts degree from Ivy Tech Community College.
Program alumni are currently working in central Indiana as cooks, executive chefs,
business owners and culinary instructors.
