Among the projects coordinated by the Food Bank of Northern Indiana are the continuing mobile food giveaways in Michigan City and La Porte, conducted in partnership with Citizens Concerned for the Homeless and the La Porte County United Way. The next will be Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to noon at Fedder’s Alley in Washington Park.

SOUTH BEND — For thousands of people in northern Indiana, a daily meal isn’t a choice between dishes. It’s a choice between food and crucial needs such as electricity, childcare or medicine, according to a local organization dedicated to feeding the hungry.

There is no luxury of what to eat. The choice is if they eat, said Marijo Martinec, executive director and CEO of the Food bank of Northern Indiana.
