Orange Leaf gives free froyo to promote food drive


Hendricks County Flyer

---- — Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt will give out eight free ounces of frozen yogurt to anyone that brings at least one canned or non-perishable food item from 3 to 7 p.m. Nov. 22 to any participating Orange Leaf Indianapolis store.

The Avon and Plainfield Orange Leaf stores are participating in this event.

This is part of the company’s Thanksgiving food drive that will support Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana.

Orange Leave CEO Reese Travis will then present an $80 check to Share Our Strength at the Indianapolis store at 82nd Street and Dean Road.

All Orange Leaf stores nationwide raised funds for the No Kid Hungry campaign throughout September by selling limited edition “Go Orange” commemorative cups. Orange Leaf’s Bloomington store sold the most cups and contributed more than $750 to the campaign.

On a yearly basis, more than 160,000 people depend on food and other critical grocery products provided by Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana to hunger relief agencies throughout 21 counties in central and southeastern Indiana. Gleaners was founded in 1980 and is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network. Since then, the food bank has distributed more than 275 million pounds of food and critical grocery products to hunger relief agencies serving needy Hoosiers. In Gleaners’ 21-county service area, more than 287,000 people live in poverty — and 103,000 of them are children.
