Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry Hog Roast

The 5th Annual Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry Hog Roast will be held on Saturday, April 26, 2014, at Riley American Legion. Tickets are $20 for Adults and $10 for children 16 & under and will be available at Roselawn Funeral Home and the Catholic Charities office.

All proceeds benefit West Central Indiana Farmers & Hunters Feeding the Hungry and Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank by providing much needed meat to the Foodbank and its 92 member agencies.

Through the FHFH program, farmers and hunters can donate their livestock or deer to be processed into ground meat. FHFH pays the processing fees. All meat is sent to the Foodbank for distribution.

For more information, contact Catholic Charities at (812)232-1447.

2014 Soup Bowl Benefit Soup Bowl Photo

The 4th annual Soup Bowl Benefit, an evening of music, conversation, soup and bread, held on Saturday, February 1, 2014 in the Maryland Community Church atrium was another success!

Through the kindness and support of artists, chefs, sponsors, and all of our volunteers, we raised more than $16,800 for Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank! That will provide an additional 67,265 meals to feed our hungry neighbors in the Wabash Valley!

The event was a sellout again this year. Those who attended not only enjoyed fellowship and warm soup in a hand-crafted bowl, they left with a heightened awareness of the issues of food insecurity among our neighbors and friends.

We couldn't have done it without you!
