Have you ever wondered where nonprofit organizations, who supply people with food, get their food supply from? Majority of these organizations belong to an area food bank, like us. We are able to bring in food at a reduced cost, or even free, and pass those savings on to our agencies. Most times, nonprofit organizations do not have the storage capacity to bring in large quantities of food. That is where the Food Bank steps in and provides the warehousing for these organizations.
Member Agencies include pantries, soup kitchens, congregate meal programs, shelters and nonprofit daycares. Qualified agencies pay a shared maintenance fee which is anywhere from $0.00 to $0.21 per pound.
