CREATING A SYSTEM THAT SUSTAINS
The food system that feeds the hungry is large and complex. The goal of the Indy Hunger Network (IHN) is to create a system that ensures anyone who is hungry can access the nutritious food they need.
Many are in need, and many are responding, but often through individual, uncoordinated efforts. We believe that in order to end food insecurity we need to make changes that create a sustainable, coordinated system.
We have demonstrated that by working together, we can make the system more efficient and effective, dramatically reducing hunger. We’re not a food distributor, and we’re not here to usurp the authority of individual organizations.
COLLABORATION IS KEY
We are a “collective impact” organization. Having looked at the food assistance system, we believe strongly that there can be enough food for all, and very soon, but only if we collaborate across boundaries of public vs. private, faith-based vs. secular, non-profit vs. for-profit.
