Food Bank Operations

Our core program is the food bank. We distribute food we obtain to our more than 135 partner agencies which operate food pantries, soup kitchens, and residential programs. The food is distributed directly to the needy people in their community. The majority of our operation is the acquisition, storage, and distribution of over 5.5 million pounds of food annually. This includes food that is donated nationally and locally, food that we purchase, and USDA Commodities through TEFAP (The Emergency Food Assistance Program).
