We feed people because no one deserves to be hungry; the KPFB's mission is to provide nourishing food to those in need requiring assistance and to promote public awareness of hunger issues. We are dedicated to addressing hunger on the Kenai Peninsula by distributing food to the hungry directly or through associated nonprofit agencies.
The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank believes adequate food and shelter are the vital keys to empowering hungry individuals in becoming productive citizens. The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank facility is a supportive and nurturing environment; and, all people are consistently encouraged to reach their highest potential through initiative and creativity. The Food Bank staff facilitates this growth with friendliness and optimism for each individual, helping them to regain their dignity and hope.
Brief History: The Food Bank, a non-profit organization incorporated in 1988, provides food to over 70 non-profit agencies for their feeding programs throughout the Kenai Peninsula.
Current Priorities: After the immediate provision of food, the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank’s focus is on addressing the root causes of hunger through education. The Food Bank now provides classes on gardening, butchering, nutrition, and budgeting on site. This is an ongoing priority and the Food Bank is constantly seeking means to provide expanded, sustaining skills for individuals and families throughout thePeninsula community.
Area Served: The Food Bank serves the entire Kenai Peninsula, which is over nine million acres and has a diverse borough population of over 56,000.
