According to Feeding Indiana's Hungry, about one third of Hoosiers are at risk of going hungry but are not eligible for food assistance. On this page, you will find organizations around the state that offer food pantries and/or meals for free to Hoosiers.
MDwise promotes and participates in events around the state to help members understand their MDwise health plan and benefits. At these events, members of our outreach team can answer any questions you may have including questions about volunteering. To find MDwise events happening near you, visit our events calendar.
