The money is distributed through the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, ISDA. In a statement, ISDA Director Bruce Kettler said, “I commend the organizations, farmers and countless others who are on the front lines, working tirelessly to end hunger in the state."
The funds could help organizations purchase and distribute fresh, healthy food options to people in their areas.
