2024 Food Insecurity Grant

A Member Opportunity made possible by a partnership between Fanning Howey & INAPEF



INAPEF and Fanning Howey are thrilled to announce a one-of-a-kind grant opportunity to combat food insecurity for children and families in Indiana’s public schools.

Our goal is to raise $50,000!  Gifted funds will be received by INAPEF, and will be redistributed to selected members through a granting process, with the intended purpose of supporting member’s district food pantry and food insecurity needs. These needs may range from facility construction, supplies, refurbishment, and stocking goods and more.

Food Insecurity is an Educational Problem

Did you Know?
  • Children facing food insecurity often do worse in school. Food insecurity negatively affects their ability to concentrate and achieve academically.

  • Children facing food insecurity often struggle with social and behavioral problems. Without proper nutrition, they have less energy for complex social interactions, cannot effectively adapt to environmental stress and often feel physically unwell.

Indiana Hunger Statistics

  • 1 in 9 (10.8%) Hoosiers and 1 in 7 (14.4%) children are food insecure.

  • 25% of Marion County residents are food insecure.

  • The highest child food insecurity rate is found in Fayette County at 26.1 percent 

  • 32 percent of Indiana’s food insecure have income above 185 percent of the Federal Poverty Level and are being served only by charitable hunger relief efforts as they are ineligible for federal nutrition programs.

We look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with the architecture, engineering, and construction industry for a

one-of-a-kind grant opportunity to combat food insecurity for children and families in Indiana’s public schools. Gifted

funds will be received by INAPEF, and will be redistributed to selected members through a granting process, with the

intended purpose of supporting member’s district food pantry and food insecurity needs. These needs may range

from facility construction, supplies, refurbishment, and stocking goods and more.  Download Sponsor PDF
