Did you know that...?
...7 out of 11 census tracts in Wellspring's service area are food deserts?

In fact 1 in 3 people in Allen County live in food deserts.

Nearly 52,000 neighbors in Allen County are considered food insecure of which 18,000 are children.

Not only are children vulnerable to food insecurity, so are seniors. The Community Harvest Food Bank saw their SeniorPak program double in demand from 2017 to 2018. Food insecurity doesn't discriminate and impacts us all.
