The closing of Bud's supermarket last year left over 50% of Fletcher Place Community Center families without access to fresh fruits and veggies. According to a neighborhood health study compiled by Amber Broughton, NEP Community Wellness Coordinator for Purdue Extension, the food desert in our neighborhood virtually starves local residents of fresh food. This is why we love our garden - Seeds of Hope! It brings affordable, accessible, healthy food options and a little outdoor living to our community.

With roots in the United Methodist Church, in 1872, Fletcher Place Community Center was started as a small outreach in the South side of downtown Indianapolis. We have grown since then. Our staff attends ongoing training to be effective in helping the society.
Taking care of the community is something everyone can do. Work with us to help families who are coping with difficult times. From Christmas help to a free store, we work all year to support families throughout the community. Contact us
