Mission Statement

The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County’s mission is to end hunger and transform the health of Santa Barbara County through good nutrition.

Description

OUR APPROACH

The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is committed to taking a negative thing - hunger - and through our combined community efforts transforming it into a positive thing - health. This leap forward in health is achieved with three ingredients: food, education and empowerment. The challenges of Hunger, Nutrition and Obesity used to be separate areas dealt with by different approaches and by different agencies and groups. The Foodbank is now tackling all three of these problems at once - through a nationally recognized continuum of programs that provide cradle to graduation intervention in children’s lives.

This builds what we call their food literacy: their ability to look after themselves with food - to budget, shop cook and use food responsibly. If we can transform their relationship to food to being one of using it as a scarce and valuable resource to power their personal health, then that is going to create that tipping point that makes a huge transformation in the health of Santa Barbara County.

By supporting the Foodbank, you are also supporting the good work of
300 agencies and programs countywide.
