Today, LISC Indianapolis continues to work with Taft at the head, to make changes within communities alongside the community-members who comprise them. 2015 was a record year for LISC as a whole, proving that community development in Indiana is still going strong since its boost during Super Bowl XLVI, and getting stronger.
Eli Lilly has a rich history of corporate citizenship. One example of Lilly’s commitment to enriching Indianapolis today is its work with the IndyHunger Network. Dave Miner, former scientist and manager at Eli Lilly and Company, works alongside Elanco, Lilly, and Dow Agrosciences to come alonside community leaders to end hunger. These companies were burdened by the fact that one in five residents are hungry in their shared headquarters city of Indianapolis, they are full, active partners in the Indy Hunger Network, a collaboration of organizations in Greater Indianapolis that promotes access for all to nutritious food through a sustainable hunger relief system.
