Is this at the Trinity Lutheran Church? I’ve never been to Pantry 279 but it was suggested to me and I’m having a hard time finding it currently!

Post 2, How to get food replaced by SNAP if you have SNAP

5 CommentsComment on Facebook

Hello! I thought I'd share for anyone who is doing the replacement snap benefits from the storm. I just spoke to a person at the local office and was told not to expect any kind of response before the 5th. And then not to expect any benefits for up to two more weeks 😞. I thought I'd share

Duke will email people letters just call and tell them you need a letter for food stamps stating when the outage began And when it's expected to end or when it did end you each person

While several of us still are without power, and Duke is working very hard to fix this, many have lost a lot of food due to the outage. So what do you do now?? Here are some options ( and this will be 3 posts long )
1. Most renters and home owners insureances cover lost food due to power outage. Be sure to document to the best of your ability what you lost. It doesn't have to be perfect, but the more detailed or pics that you have, the easier it will be.
2. If you are of the SNAP food stamp program, they will replace lost food due to storm outages. If the area you are in is a disaster or emergency area, which we are, they will give you extra. See post 2 for info on that or contact SNAP.
3. Go to your local food pantries hhfoodbank.org/find-food/ that are open. AS they get power they will open as per their rules. Mother Hubbards is open until 6 today ( Thurs 6/27 ) I believe Community Kitchen is open for hot meals as well, but check with them about their power situation. We will be open Sat 1-4. If you have children, take advantage of the summer food programs places offer. OUrs is pinned at the top of our page, Community Kitchen has one, as do the schools as well.
4. Hoosier Hills Food Bank is having a 1 time special food give away tomorrow ( Fri 6/28 ) from 10-4 at thier place 2333 W Industrial Park Dr for people whom have lost food. I will post that info in post 3. But they request come later vs earlier, everyone will get the same, only 2 families can be picked up for per car and NO DELIVERY. This is firm, They too have no power, BE NICE.
5. Check with Red Cross, as we are a disaster/emergency area, they may have additional options.

The most important thing is, be kind and help others. Many do not have transportation, offer to pick up. Remember, everyone is in the same place, many have damages and still have no power, they did not have to come in and work pantries or the food bank, they are doing it because it's important that people get food. Trust me, we/they are just as hot, if not more so than you, they hurt from the work, they are thristy and hungry too. We will all make it thru this, it has been and could be worse. Just a small speed bump in the road of life.

What a Day! Even though we had no power, we heard the community say they were hungry and food had been destroyed by power outages and the storm, so we opened anyway! Thank you to HHFB who sent us produce and bread, even though they too did NOT have power, to Dollar General Sothside for quickly calling and giving us their cooler items which would have gone bad from their power loss, To Calvary Lutheran Church with Pastor Gary and his wonderful wife Doris who arranged for us to get a generator on loan, To Jim McGraw for driving all the way to Bedford to get it for us and then stick around to volunteer, AND a HUGE shout out, thanks and Love to my wonderful Pantry family who came in to help get things ready, clean and hand out food all day, even though many had damage to their houses too. Felicia even went and did Childrens Summer Food Program at Union at Crescent after helping all morning and early afternoon. Everyone put aside their personal hardships and came to make sure people had food. There are grapes, aplles, and bananas by the front door of the pantry if anyone wants some. We will be closed thurs unless we get power back. Thank you every onefor making sure deliveries were made and food got to all who came!! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to our community. I’ve been blessed and haven’t Had to use Pantry 279, but I’m so thankful for you and what you do! Blessings to you always!!

Some of our Unraveled Club sewing group popped in at the height of your chaos. Not knowing you were without electricity. Even in all the mayhem everyone was so kind and Cindy was able to show us around even in the dark. Praying you get electricity sooner than later. You do great work for the community.
