San Francisco-Marin Food Bank

Before the pandemic, one in five neighbors was at risk of hunger. Now, we know the need is even greater. We address hunger head-on – from our food pantry network and home-delivered groceries to CalFresh (food stamp) enrollment. Every week, over 53,000 households count on us for food assistance. 60% of what we distribute to them is fresh fruit and vegetables.

Ballard Food Bank

Ballard Food Bank’s mission is to bring food and hope to our neighbors…because there can be enough for everyone.

To achieve this mission, we provide access to nutritious food through our grocery-style food bank, no-cost café, home delivery, and Weekend Food for Kids program. We also host the Community Resource Hub, where partner organizations offer a range of services like housing, medical care, and veterans’ benefits – all under one roof. Our financial assistance program helps prevent homelessness through eviction prevention. Clients also have access to utility assistance, identification vouchers, and our mail program.

Through this combination of services, we help our most vulnerable neighbors on the path to self-sufficiency.

Food Bank of North Alabama

In 1984 a small group of committed volunteers started the Food Bank of North Alabama by borrowing a desk from the Huntsville Madison County Senior Center and making calls to local farmers. In our early years, we focused exclusively on feeding neighbors in need but the number of residents who could not afford to buy enough food to eat only increased. So, we broadened our aim and now take a two-pronged approach to solving hunger.

We feed the hungry today AND create solutions that will end hunger tomorrow.

We accomplish this mission by supplying 13 million pounds of food a year to a network of over 200 food pantries, shelters and children’s programs in 11 counties of North Alabama. Together we feed over 80,000 people at risk of hunger annually.

We also address hunger’s root causes through broad-scale collaborations and local food initiatives that foster entrepreneurship and healthy food access across our region.
