About us

Second Helpings, Inc. accepts donated perishable and overstocked food to prepare nutritious meals for thousands of hungry children and adults every day, and distributes them free of charge through local social service agencies in Greater Indianapolis. Second Helpings also trains unemployed and underemployed adults for meaningful careers in the culinary industry.

We're more than a soup kitchen or a food pantry - we're a community kitchen. We're not just teaching people to cook - we're providing an avenue for people to transform their own lives. We don't just collect food - we rescue food because we can't stand to see it go to waste when others have none. Today, the need is so much greater than we ever imagined when we began - so we'll go on undeterred. Would you join us?
