Circle Up Indy Pre-Festival Staff Service Day

As the excitement builds for this Saturday’s Youth Against Violence Peace Festival, Circle Up Indy staff and volunteers took time out to assist with the preparation, serving and cleanup at Hope Christian Community Center’s Wednesday  Luncheon. Located at 1970 Caroline Avenue, Hope Christian Community Center hosts a free lunch for members of the community every Wednesday. This is just one of the many activities held at this location, and Circle Up Indy was honored to have the opportunity to help out.

Mayor Joe Hogsett to Announce New Community Health Network – Brandywine Creek Farms Initiative

This Saturday’s event promises to be the biggest and best ever,  and Circle Up Indy is proud to announce that Indianapolis Mayor, Joe Hoggset will once again be in attendance. Mayor Hoggset will be taking time out of his busy schedule to speak and show support for the launch of a pilot program to address the limited access and lack of affordable and
nutritious food in targeted areas in Marion County.

Community Health Network is partnering with Brandywine Creek Farms to
address food insecurity in Community’s East region through an Affordable
Access Mobile Farm Market, known as ‘The Rolling Harvest Food Truck’. The
pilot program will also include educational opportunities about growing and
selecting nutritious food.
