Indianapolis Food Bank that gives away baby food

An Indianapolis grocery bank received a huge organic baby food donation this week that is now being given away.

This week, EcoMom.com, the Amazon baby website, donated 75,000 servings of baby food to four food banks in the country, including St. Vincent de Paul, Indianapolis.

Canned food, chips and cheese were also donated. Now those in need have the opportunity to feed their infants organic pear puree thanks to a company committed to feeding one baby a day for every purchase made on their website. Paul Whithey of the St. Vincent de Paul Pantry said baby food was in high demand in pantries and could not be distributed after the expiration date.

“If we have baby food, someone is going to feed their baby. If they have no money and no baby food, the baby will cry but not be fed or given something that is not very good for them,” said Whitney.

Early Friday morning, people were lining up at the St. Vincent de Paul grocery store on East 30th Street. Almost a third of the employees had babies.
