Lincoln Financial Foundation Supports Healthy Families Initiative With $80,000 Grant

Lincoln Financial Foundation awarded a generous $80,000 grant in support of Community Harvest Food Bank’s Healthy Families Initiative. The funding will provide more than 350,000 healthy meals to food insecure children, seniors, Veterans, and families of northeast Indiana. With nearly 90,000 food insecure individuals living in northeast Indiana, the meals will make a substantial positive impact on hunger.

“We are honored to have the support of Lincoln Financial Foundation in our fight against hunger,” said Carmen Cumberland, Executive President of Community Harvest Food Bank. “Through their financial contributions and volunteerism, they are true champions for vulnerable children and families throughout the community.”

“Lincoln Financial Foundation believes that all people should have the ability to meet their basic needs for food,” said Deb Washler, Lincoln Financial’s Fort Wayne Program Officer. “Community Harvest Food Bank is at the forefront of fighting hunger in our community; we are proud to be their partner and we encourage our employees and others to take action by volunteering with them.”

Produce, protein, and other foods will be distributed through the Community Cupboard pantry, Farm Wagon mobile pantry, and Holiday Food programs. For more information Community Harvest Food Banks hunger relief programs, please visit
