It has been a vital part of ensuring our Tri-State families could make it thru this health crisis.

During the height of the pandemic, Feed Evansville was giving away as many as 7,000 food boxes.

But, more than a year into the effort, Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and the Feed Evansville Chair Lisa Vaughn are looking ahead to what's next.

Over the next few months, Feed Evansville will be transitioning the efforts to operate under the umbrella of the newly formed Food Security Commission.

"Over the next two months, Feed Evansville will be transitioning into the food security commission and working with those different partners and agencies to make sure resources and education, eligibility requirements, and transportation, are all available to the fellow community members and families in the city," says Lisa Vaughn, Chair of Feed Evansville.

June 30th will be the last food box giveaway at Hartke Pool.

After that, they will be providing food resources in neighborhoods this summer providing food resources in neighborhoods this summer.

Until then, the community food share continues on every Wednesday from 11 a.m. thru 5 p.m. or until supplies last.

New from now until the end of June, there will be free COVID-19 vaccinations available during the weekly event.
