Muncie, IN—An extra free food tailgate by Second Harvest Food Bank was held in the parking lot outside Ball State’s Scheumann Stadium on April 8th from 10 am to 12 pm.
Food items were handed out by members of the Indiana National Guard to 607 cars filled with appreciative families. “John” and his cousin from Muncie were first in line to obtain food, after arriving at the parking lot at 3am in the morning—a seven hour wait.
The tailgate operated with 4 separate lines of cars and food delivery areas, under the expert direction and guidance of Al Holdren, who directed the logistics of the tailgate. Some photos are below. For information on future tailgates click here.
