Mission Statement

Our Mission is to enhance the quality of life in Northwest Ohio by relentlessly working to eliminate hunger and improve nutrition. Each month, we collect and distribute fresh produce and packaged food to 428 food pantries, soup kitchens, and programs that feed the hungry in our region. Unlike other programs, SeaGate Food Bank never charges for its services. And since food is not the only need, we continually develop and implement programs to educate, train, support and encourage the underserved in our community.

Description

SeaGate Food Bank is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation and a true grassroots organization. It started in a garage in the mid-1970s and today serves 438 food pantries in eight NW Ohio counties, providing food at no cost to over 130,000 each month. Amazingly, it does this with a full time staff of only 10, but many hundreds of volunteers. It is a truly wonderful group of people.

Great organization with a diligent and caring staff. The supervisor for the distribution center, Dolores, is a super person who is charismatic and organized. Seagate provides an essential service for those who need help with food. The smiles of the staff are are a plus, too.
