Put on your best denim and pearls (or tie!) for a fun evening of dining and dancing while raising awareness and funds to fight hunger across North Central Indiana. Join Food Finders Food Bank for the sixth annual Blue Jean Ball presented in partnership with Purdue University College of Agriculture. 

Hunger is a real issue for more than 77,000 individuals across the 16 counties served by Food Finders Food Bank. For many, this means needing to make tough choices: food or rent, food or medication? 

Together with our broad network of community partners, Food Finders strives to take food out of this painful equation. We believe that no one should go hungry in our community. Since 1981, we have been a reliable source of food and hope for struggling families. With your help, we can fight hunger in North Central Indiana. 

Due to the support of our generous community, the 2018 Blue Jean Ball raised more than $79,000 towards critical operating funds for the food bank. The Blue Jean Ball is the first fundraiser to ensure Food Finders continues to address the essential needs of our food-insecure population. The food bank distributes more than nine million pounds of food annually to Hoosiers through the combined efforts of 120 nonprofit Agency Partners and the food bank's direct service programs: BackPack Program, Mobile Pantry Program, Senior Grocery Program, Summer Food Service Program, J.P. Lisack Community Food Pantry, Education Program and Resource Coordination.
