Food Bank of Alaska is dedicated to eliminating hunger by collecting and distributing food through partner agencies feeding hungry Alaskans and through anti-hunger leadership. We believe that no one deserves to be hungry.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
You will fill many plates for Alaskan children, families and seniors when you make a gift of $25 or more to Food Bank of Alaska through Pick.Click.Give. When you donate to Food Bank of Alaska, you also support our 225 partner food pantry and meal programs from Bean's Cafe to the Native Village of Point Lay. You and other Alaskans made it possible for us to distribute enough food statewide last year for 5.7 million meals!
More than 107,000 Alaskans worry about where their next meal is coming from, and this number includes 1 in 5 children. In addition to supplying our partner food pantries and meal programs in Southcentral and more than 100 rural communities, Food Bank of Alaska also provides 150,000 meals a year to children statewide and food boxes for seniors. We take our Mobile Food Pantry to Anchorage neighborhoods five times every week. We also work with community partners to provide groceries for a holiday meal to almost 15,000 families in need through the annual Thanksgiving Blessing and Anchorage Neighborhood GIFT events.
Food Bank of Alaska prevents food waste by collecting surplus food from grocery stores, wholesalers, producers, farmers, and the fishing industry. We also administer government food programs and purchase food, using financial donations from the community, to add nutrition and variety when food donations are low. 30% of Food Bank of Alaska's budget is the result of donations from community members like you. We also appreciate food donations from individuals and community food drives. Visit www.foodbankofalaska.org if you would like to organize a food drive or volunteer.
