Food Drop Friday on Friday, May 8, 2020

Locally owned food distributor McFarling Foods continues to salute local frontline heroes during the outbreak of COVID-19 virus, with their new program: Food Drop Friday.  

This week’s Food Drop Friday event will celebrate National Nurses Week, as McFarling donates and delivers 75 boxes of food to nurses at Community East Hospital. Delivery will take place on Friday, May 8, 2020, and each 20 lb. food box will contain steaks and other meats, produce and various grocery staples (approximate value $200/box).

Food Drop Friday is a chance for us to give back to the community we care about”, says Jason Acquisto, Marketing Manager at McFarling Foods.  “We cannot thank these people enough. The nursing professionals in our community have been there through this entire situation. It’s an honor to celebrate their compassion, expertise and sacrifice during National Nurses Week.”

In addition to Food Drop Friday, McFarling Foods continued to find new ways to help the community this week, including:

  • Provision of 500+ half-pint milk cartons for Groundwork Indy, to meet the needs of local school age youth in Indianapolis
  • Delivery of approximately $10,000 in donated food supplies to The Sharing Place Food Pantry, a Lutheran Child and Family Services assistance program which serves families in nine zip codes within the Greater Indianapolis area
  • Donation of several thousands of dollars in food and new partnership with “Go Cats” Food Pantry at Lawrence North High School, which has thousands of Lawrence North students and families in need.
  • Official Grand Opening of FHL Missional Drive-Thru Food Pantry in Castleton. McFarling’s food donation and ten-person volunteer team served 100 + families in need on Friday 5/1. Another 100 + families are projected to be served at the pantry on Saturday 5/9.
