Mission Statement

To improve the health and well-being of Merced & Mariposa County residents affected by hunger; through the acquisition, storage, and distribution of nutritious food. To provide and advocate for, increased access to, and consumption of, nutritious fruits, vegetables, nuts and other foods. To integrate, facilitate and advocate for programs and services that address hunger’s underlying and related issues.

Description

To fulfill our mission, we source and distribute food, and other products to those in need with the help of partnering agencies and MCFB programs. We also conduct hunger education and awareness campaigns and advocate for public policies that alleviate hunger.

The Merced County Food Bank is a private non-profit organization that grew out of community collaboration to feed the hungry in Merced County.

Since 2004, MCFB has distributed more than 25 million pounds of food. We provide food to nearly 17,000 people every month and in FY 2015 we distributed 4.1 million meals-that’s more than 4.4 million pounds of food.

MCFB collects food from hundreds of resources, which - with the help of 1,300 volunteers annually - we distribute through a network of more than 100 partner agencies. 92 percent of revenue raised goes directly to programs.
