"The Caring Center is completely privately funded. It stands as an example of what communities can accomplish when they direct the solutions to difficult and perplexing problems that affect our neighbors."

Worth While Kids Helping at Food Pantry

Food Pantry/Food Classes

The Caring Center offers a client choice food pantry, which means that families have the flexibility to choose food their family enjoys based around My Plate. Points are given to each family to “spend” on foods that match established nutritional guidelines.

No appointments are necessary; however we ask that if you are a new client, you arrive at least one hour before closing time to ensure enough time for registration and selecting your food items. For existing clients, we ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to closing.

Monday and Wednesdays – 8 am – 2 pm
Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday – 11 am – 5 pm
First Saturday of the month – 9 am – 12 pm
Note: Closed the 4th Thursday of each month to refresh resources

The Caring Center has monthly meetings to discuss food issues, help manage food dollars and address participant’s immediate needs.

Cooking Club

The Caring Center partners with the Purdue Extension to provide weekly hands-on group meeting to explore creative ways of cooking and the value of nutrition.

We meet every Wednesday from 11:30 am – 1 pm at The Caring Center.
