How Food Banks Work?

Food Donations:
Non-perishable, in-date food is donated by the public, such as schools, churches, and businesses, as well as supermarket collection points. It is then sorted into emergency food boxes by volunteers, to be given to people in need.

Additional support:
Our food bank network helps people break free from poverty by providing additional support to help people resolve the crises they’re facing so that they don’t need to use a food bank. This could include things like debt advice, mental health support, or benefits guidance . Food banks rely on the support of their local communities to support people in poverty.

Get Involved:
Our vision is for a future without the need for food banks. Together we can build a society, where everyone has enough to eat.
No one in the US should need a food bank’s help. Our vision is for a nation without the need for food banks because everyone has enough money coming in to cover the essentials.
But until then, we need your help. Financial and food donations, corporate partnerships, fundraising challenges, and volunteering opportunities are just some of the ways you can take action and join our movement for change

Donate Food Supplies

Give in Celebration

Church Support:
Across the US, food banks offer vital support to people in crisis, and churches are at the heart of this work generously providing venues, volunteers, leadership, donations, and more.
Supporting food banks to provide emergency help in your communities is a crucial part of our work, but we’re also campaigning to build a better future together – a more just and compassionate society.
