  • Allowing an increase in the distribution of foods
  • Proper sanitation practices such as handwashing and sterilization of high-contact exchange points

In response to the increased need for local food assistance, Indiana WIC would like to share a new tool developed by the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) that will make it easier for families to find food resources near their homes. The tool includes two types of organizations shown on the map: food pantries and meal sites. Food pantries are locations where Hoosiers can pick up groceries to prepare and use at their homes. Meal sites serve packed meals that are ready to take home and eat.
