Vermillion Tanager Takeout

Founded in August 2016, Tanager Takeout is Vermillion’s first school-based food pantry. All students in the Vermillion School District, including Head Start programs, are welcome to shop for various food items plus school and personal care supplies.Tanager Takeout’s mission is to provide food over the weekend to those children in the Vermillion School District without access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. This mission is accomplished by having a facility where there is a fairly large choice of food items. Children and/or their parents can shop for this food during our open hours on Thursdays or Fridays.
