Mission: Bear Necessities strives to provide food assistance for those in need within the Ivy Tech community and to refer them to community organizations for social services.
About: Bear Necessities is a food pantry run through the Office of Student Life and Development in partnership with the Center for Working Families. In Spring of 2014, the Office of Student Life and Development felt inspired to start a food pantry in response to the success of other local colleges’ success and the partnership with IU Health’s Garden on the Go. Work began in the spring on obtaining support from the campus, finding a space and stocking the shelves.
The Bear Necessities Food Pantry serves the students of Marion, Hamilton, Hancock, Shelby, Johnson, Morgan, Hendricks, and Boone counties. If hunger is hurting you or someone you care about, Bear Necessities can help. We're working together to ensure everyone in need receives at least one meal a day.
