Food Insecurity

whitelycoopWhitely has started the journey to make the food desert in the community bloom and to resolve the serious problem of food insecurity in our area.

We have created the Whitely Community Food Pantry. It is open the first and third Thursday of each month from 4pm-6pm. On the first Thursday of each month it will be at Union Missionary Baptist Church and on the third Thursday at Harvest Christian Fellowship. It is open  only to those people who live in the Whitely area or are members of the Whitely Community Council. To use the pantry you must have an ID or a bill with your name and address showing you are a Whitely resident.

We need your help as volunteers. If you can volunteer some hours please contact Jay Zimmerman at or Mary Dollison at 288-1892.

Also we are raising needed funds to support the pantry and to begin to achieve our longterm goals.The current objective is to secure funds to  pay for the  food needed for the pantry. Longer term we hope to acquire property to house the pantry, and possibly a grocery store. Donations to help with funding for this project can be sent to Whitely Community Council at P.O. Box 665, Muncie, IN 47308. Checks should be made out to Whitely Community Council with the phrase “food insecurity” written in the memo line, to ensure the funds go to the appropriate project. You can also support the pantry through our GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for the Whitely Community Food Pantry project, please click here
