SECOND HELPINGS

January 19, 2010

Second Helpings is an Indianapolis service organization has been providing food and job training for the last 12 years. There are about 600 volunteers that work at Second Helpings. Last November, it served 49,000 meals to the Indianapolis community. In fact, more meals were served that month than in any other month in the last six years

Second Helpings also has a culinary job training program that teaches unemployed or underemployed people important job skills.

Y-Press recently visited Second Helpings and learned a lot about the kinds of food it prepares and how it tries to tailor meals to its clients. For example, CEO Cindy Hubert explained that when serving children, the organization tries to include food it knows kids like and leaves vegetables like mushrooms for the adults’ meals.

This audio slideshow illustrates more in-depth how Second Helpings helps the community every day. Also, a Second Helpings volunteer explains why she lends her skills to the organization.
