Reviews for Food Bank Of Northern Nevada

Rating: 5 stars  

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

distributing food in units for the local receipient food banks

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

keep beating the drum for food donation. Publish easy to find "red barrels" for local donations.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've experienced people in extreme need receive the food and nutrition help they require only through direct contribution of the Food Bank. Individual food pantries and shelters could not operate without the resources of the Food Bank

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The Food Bank needs more funding and resources to provide greater help to our community and region.
