We are doing our best to update the Community Compass app, but during this current crisis, many food assistance programs are closing or changing their operations. Please consult this page for our most recent updates, and contact pantries or meal sites directly to see hours, locations, and policies. Additionally, if you want to apply for SNAP (food stamps) and need assistance, please call Gleaners’ SNAP Hotline at 317-644-1280.
