IndyBar Bar Leader Series alumni and current series participants teamed up on Tuesday, January 17, for a service event at Gleaners Food Bank. Members spent the morning learning about hunger in Indianapolis and then packing supplies for families in the Indianapolis area. Bar Leader Series alumni and participants typically participate in two to three service events each year.
Bar Leaders learn about the cooler room, just one area of Gleaners Food Bank. Gleaners, and organizations like it, play a major role in addressing hunger and food insecurity, a concern of one in six people in central and southeast Indiana.
