1 in 9 residents turn to the Food Bank.
We distribute food directly to low-income people at community sites and make food available for other nonprofit organizations serving the ill, needy and infants.
24 million pounds of food was distributed last year. More than half of that was fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Food Bank has developed programs that provide food to meet the demand as well as support the nutritional needs of the people we serve.
1 in 4 emergency food recipients are children.
Programs including Food for Children, Farm 2 Kids, and the School Pantry Program operate throughout the year to help alleviate childhood hunger.
