Together these facilities in partnership with more than 800 agencies and community partners distribute over 30 million pounds of food annually to the 24-county service area through the food bank’s hunger-relief programs.

Flow of Food

Food Bank Flow

Donated: We acquire food from various national donors, USDA, local retail partners, farmers, and community food drives.

Inspected: Food is inspected for safety, sorted, and packed into boxes ready to be distributed to members of our network.

Transported: Once our volunteers have thoroughly inspected items, food gets transported to member agencies and other food bank partners for their distributions.

Distributed: Our partners serve as our hands and feet by directly distributing the food to those in need within their local community.
