Several food pantries in and around Indianapolis have fully stocked shelves, thanks to an abundance of donations and many young servant hearts.

Donations were provided by those who attended Christian musician David Crowder’s concert last month at Northview Church’s Carmel campus. Attendees brought in bags of food in exchange for concert tickets.

The generous food donations also created a serving opportunity for the Adelfotes groups. On Wednesday, February 8, following the concert, the high school students and their group leaders all reported to Northview to sort the food into bins.

Midwest Food Bank provided 10 bins, which the students filled quickly. Midwest then generously delivered six more bins on the following Friday, which were all filled with the remaining food donations.

There were 15,000 pounds of food total that was donated from the community. Midwest took the donations back to their facility to split, sort and deliver to Brookside Community Church’s food pantry and Good Samaritan Network of Hamilton County, Inc.

“This was such a blessing,” Sarah Bensinger, urban outreach coordinator, said. “It was amazing to see how much the Lord provided through Northview Church and the community to help those in need.”

During the concert’s four-day tour, over 50,000 pounds of food were collected.
