Lafayette’s Food Finders Food Bank is partnering with CityBus this summer to deliver fresh produce to ten sites throughout the city. The initiative supplements the food supplies low-income families need during a tough time of year: the summer break from school.

Nearly a fifth of Tippecanoe County youths have spotty access to food, so a local food bank hopes to bring nutrition where it’s needed most with a series of so-called “pop-up sites.”

Food Finders Chief Operating Officer Kier Crites Scherger says when children are out of school, food is even more scarce for low-income families.
