Our Story 2018-03-19T10:45:33+00:00

Together with our partners, we provide healthy solutions to end hunger in our community.

 

All Faiths Food Bank (AFFB) was founded by a group of individuals who, through their respective organizations, were feeding the hungry. They combined efforts in 1989 to incorporate as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Since then, AFFB has been the only Food Bank serving Sarasota and DeSoto Counties. It has been a Certified Member of Feeding America since 1990.

In 2016, the Food Bank changed its mission representing a shift in how we address hunger and an understanding that hunger is a health issue. Since then AFFB’s new mission has been: Together with our partners, we provide healthy solutions to end hunger in our community.

Thanks to our community’s generosity, we have recently expanded our warehouse to double the size in order to provide better services to our next-door neighbors in need, while we shrink the hunger gap. In 2018 a new brand was also born – one that is fresh, engaging, and mission-implicit in design. The new brand logo visually re-defines and energizes AFFB underneath our mission – to provide healthy solutions to end hunger in our community.

As the food bank grows and develops our number one priority is, and always will be, to feed the hungry.
