Mission:
Our mission is to provide food for as many people in need as possible. To fulfill our mission, the FoodBank solicits, collects, stores and distributes over 5 million of pounds of donated and surplus, perishable and nonperishable food annually to more than 260 area food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other feeding programs. These agencies provide the food directly to children, elderly, working poor adults and families in crisis in their neighborhoods. This food helps low income families remain as self-sufficient as possible by allowling them to use their limited resources to pay for other basic needs, such as housing, medical bills, child care costs or transportation to and from work, while still being able to put food on the family table.

In addition, the FoodBank addresses the root causes of hunger by providing Culinary Job Skills Training for people in need of better paid jobs through its onsite kitchen, which also prepares hot meals for at risk children at a local after school program (a Kids Cafe).  The Backpack Program provides food for the weekend to chronically hungry children at local schools. Our Mobile Pantry program, in partnership with the Salvation Army, provides emergency food to people living in areas that are not served by pantries. The Food Stamp (now called SNAP) Outreach program provides eligibility information and application assistance to families eligible for this important national food assistance program.

The FoodBank welcomes community partners and volunteers from businesses, schools, civic organizations as well as individuals to help in all aspects of FoodBank operations.
