Hancock County Food Pantry
Greenfield, IN 46140
Details: The Hancock County Food Pantry’s mission is to secure and distribute food to the needy in an effort to alleviate hunger in Hancock County. The Hancock County Food Pantry is a 100% volunteer organization with over 100 volunteers. The Food Pantry is governed by a Board of Directors who meet bi-monthly. The Food Pantry secures food and non-food essentials (toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, laundry detergent, etc.) through purchases and donations. The Food Pantry purchases about half of what is distributed at significantly reduced costs through organizations such as Gleaners Food Bank and Save-A-Lot. Donated items are received from individuals, churches, businesses, and organizations as well as the Midwest Food Bank, Abrahams & Sons, USPS food drive, 40,000 Pounds of Giving, the USDA, and local grocery chains. We serve residents of Hancock County who meet government minimum income guidelines during six weekly open hours. We give each household in their monthly visit to the Food Pantry food for 7-10 days; enough to tide them over until their next month’s paycheck or SNAP vouchers. Food Distribution Hours: Monday 1:00pm - 2:30 pm, 5:30pm - 6:30 pm; Tuesday 9:00am - 10:30 am, 6:00pm - 7:00 pm; Wednesday 7:00pm - 8:00 pm; Thursday 7:00pm - 8:00 pm
Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen
Greenfield, IN 46140
Details: The soup kitchen was inspired by the spirit of Kenneth Butler who was once a fire chief in Greenfield. He was a man who dedicated his time to helping those in need through truck-stop ministries, prison ministries, and taking in homeless people. So, when a small group of dedicated people initiated the renovation and creation of the soup kitchen, they felt there was no better person to memorialize than Chief Butler. Remodeling of the building began in December, 2008, and the kitchen opened its doors to the public on October 12, 2009. All remodeling was done by volunteers and funded by the community. The support of our volunteers and the community continues to be amazing. Open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 7p.m.; Serving hours: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. for lunch; 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. for dinner. Closed on days when the Hancock County schools are closed due to weather conditions.
