Indiana Nexstar Stations Support Local Food Banks

Posted on 12/9/2022

The Nexstar Media Charitable Foundation and Indianapolis Nexstar Media stations FOX 59 and CBS 4 donated $5,000 each to two food banks serving the area, Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana and Midwest Food Bank of Indiana. On the same day, FOX 59 held a day-long event with Financial Center First Credit Union to benefit the food banks, encouraging viewers to donate either by texting, calling or via the station’s website.

These efforts are part of the annual “Pack the Pantries” project to help local food pantries stock their shelves. The donations will be used to help each food bank continue providing vitally needed food and supplies to families and fight food insecurity throughout central Indiana.

“The number of families in central Indiana who are experiencing hunger and food insecurity is staggering,” said Dominic Mancuso, vice president and general manager, FOX59 and CBS4. “Year after year, we prioritize the ‘Pack the Pantries’ project to help community organizations provide some relief to those who need it most. Supporting these local food banks is core to the company’s mission.”
