How it works

 

trucks-at-dawn-edits6 AM:

7 trucks, 7 drivers, 413 miles.

19 deliveries, dropping off 40,000 pounds of food, and making 3 pickups.

Efficiency is how we roll.

This is only possible with the support of our community.

 

 

HowLeafTruckAppleFOOD DONATIONS ARE MADE: All Faiths Food Bank secures donations from the food and grocery industries, government agencies, food drives, local growers, individuals and other organizations.

FOOD IS INSPECTED AND DISTRIBUTED: All Faiths Food Bank inspects donated food, ensures safe storage and reliable distribution to where it is needed most. More than 7.1 million pounds of food move through our warehouse each year.

FOOD REACHES THOSE IN NEED: Food is provided to people in need at food pantries, soup kitchens, schools, veterans’ programs, youth organizations, senior centers, and emergency shelters.

Pine View student Josh Wolff, president of their American Film Society, came to the Food Bank and created a 2 minute video about our work:

 

As the leader in ending hunger in our community, we have set goals for ourselves: Establish a visible, effective and efficient regional distribution system that meets the highest industry standards set by Feeding America, USDA, and AIB.

We are a distribution center that picks up donated food, sorts it, fills partner agency orders, delivers to 184 agencies and programs that distribute the food, and host mobile pantries throughout Sarasota and DeSoto Counties that give food directly to clients in need. Enough food for 6.5 million meals (8 million pounds) pass through our 20,000 square food warehouse on its way to families in need.
