The Duke Energy Foundation is awarding nearly $100,000 in grants to local food pantries and community organizations to help put food on the table for Hoosier families in need.
The grants will support the purchase of canned goods, fresh produce and essential supplies to address food insecurity across the company’s Indiana service territory.
“Food is the most basic of needs, and there are organizations throughout the state that provide a lifeline to Hoosiers who may not know where their next meal will come from,” said Stan Pinegar, president of Duke Energy Indiana. “They fill a vital role in the communities we serve, and we’re committed to supporting their work to help increase food access for those in need.”
Among the organizations awarded grants:
? Churches in Mission (Morgan County) – $1,000
? Clay County YMCA (Clay County) – $10,000
? Hendricks County Food Pantry Coalition (Hendricks County) – $5,000
