Incorporated: 1979 in AK
Food Bank of Alaska fights hunger in Alaska in a unique way – by
collecting food and distributing it to a network of over 300 charities feeding
their hungry neighbors. In Fiscal Year 2015 the organization collected 5.2
million pounds of donated food – much of which would otherwise have been thrown
away – from grocery stores, wholesalers, farmers, and the fishing industry. In
addition, Food Bank of Alaska received federal commodities and purchased food
in bulk. Then the organization distributed over 6.8 million pounds to local
partners and to the rest of its statewide network by truck, barge, and plane.
Food Bank Alaska provides 100,000 meals to children every year and almost 18,000 food boxes to improve nutrition for seniors. The Mobile Food Pantry takes one million pounds of food a year to Anchorage neighborhoods. Working with partners and an army of volunteers and supporters, Food Bank of Alaska distributes a turkey and groceries for a complete Thanksgiving or holiday meal to 14,000 families annually.
Food Bank Alaska also advocates with policy makers for strong programs designed to make sure that children, families, and seniors in Alaska have enough to eat.
