On February 13, 2016, the 2nd Annual Caring Center Charity Gala was held at the Golf Club of Indiana. 150 friends of The Caring Center dined, danced to the music of My Yellow Rickshaw and donated. $9,000 was raised for The Caring Center programs, and we are one step closer to "Ending Childhood Hunger in Boone County." View the photos from 2016 The Caring Center Charity Gala.

Table Talk is a program of The Caring Center. Monthly meetings are as follows:
A place to come and talk about food issues that you and your family face on a daily basis. This new program will help you manage your food dollars and explore creative ways of cooking, in a "fun hands on way." Learn more...
A food drive is a way for a group to collect items for the families that are at risk of hunger. A group typically collects non-perishables, such as canned goods, and boxed items from the community. This is a simple yet practical community service initiative. Here are the "Easy Steps for a Successful Food Drive."
If you are familiar with us you probably know what "Zero by 2020" means. It represents our goal to eliminate childhood hunger in Boone County by 2020.
