Local donors are our number one source of food donations, providing more than 30% of the food distributed by the Foodbank.

The Foodbank works with local food donors to rescue surplus food and food that cannot be sold but is safe to eat, for distribution through our network of approximately 600 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs.
