Senior Safety Net Food Distribution Comes to Blackford County

HARTFORD CITY, IN – LifeStream Services and Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana are partnering to offer a Senior Safety Net food distribution in Blackford County. The program will provide assorted foods for older adults in need.

The Blackford County Senior Safety Net will be held on the fourth Tuesday of the month beginning November 24 from 2:00pm to 3:30pm, or until supplies last, at the Blackford County Senior Center located at 101 S. Mill St. Hartford City, IN 47348.
