All you ever hear about is how fantastic this org is, it is not hype. They have an enormous need to meet in a rather small community. Said in a different way, too high a percentage of Northern Nevadans are food insecure and the Food Bank meets this enormous need. I have said before, the really great groups in this community don't get the pub they deserve. This is another case. This is an impressive non-profit.

I am an avid supporter of the Northern NV Food Bank. This organization efficiently and effectively moves food from its warehouse to a multitude of distribution sites. Through many innovative programs the hungry of Northern Nevada are fed in a compassionate and caring manner without the fan fare of glitz or glamour.

I volunteered at FBNN when I was between jobs and found everyone to be genuinely concerned about hunger in NoNV and ensuring they did their best for all those in need. What a great group of people!

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada is an invaluable contributor to the community and region. They work tirelessly to collect, warehouse, and distribute food and necessities to those in need. They provide food and nutrition assistance not only for the homeless, but also with schools, under-employed, and shelters. Although working with a limited budget and resources, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada consistently ensures that the value of every dollar in funding is multiplied in the resulting meals and assistance. Without the support and leadership of the Food Bank, local food pantries, shelters, relief organizations and individuals would suffer and the community and region would face an unbearable burden.
