Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our mission is to fight hunger by engaging, educating and empowering our community. While our core work is food distribution, our efforts extend far beyond that. Our mission is lived out every day by engaging, educating and empowering both people in need and those who want to help. From volunteering your time to assisting people in finding economic security, the Food Bank covers a wide range of opportunities for people to learn and get involved.

Description

We utilize more than 1,700 volunteers a month, over 150 staff members, a large fleet of trucks and the largest food banking facility in the United States to procure and distribute food and grocery items received from hundreds of donors. Our donors include manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, brokers, restaurants, food drives, farmers and individuals. The product is easily accessed by our partner agencies. They place their orders online and arrange for pick up or delivery. Once the food arrives at the agency, it is provided to families and individuals in need.

It has been many years (1989-1990) since volunteering here. (I was unable to enter those years above, so I put 01/01/2000.) I went with a group from work and was impressed to see the operation there. I'm sure it's changed very much over the years. You can encounter some rotten food and perhaps even some maggots as you sort canned goods, but it was very rewarding work and I felt as though I'd done something worthwhile for others.

Because I feel that it;s time we help people right here with us as well as people in other country, let's help everyone GOD DOES!!!!1
