Step 1:Food is Donated or Purchased

Food and grocery items are donated and/or received from national and local food companies, government agenices, food drives, special purchases and from Feeding America progrms. 

Step 2: Food is transported to the foodbank

Much of the donated food comes from out of state and is delivered to the foodbank. However, many local food donation programs require the foodbank to pick up donations and return them to their facility where it is properly stored in temperature-controlled warehouses, freezers, and coolers. Foodbanks must maintain trucks and staff to transport the food to the foodbank.

Step 3: Foodbank stores and distributes

Once the foodbank recieves a shipment, it inspects for quality, sorts and repacks the items for distribution to member agencies throughout its service area. 

Step 4: Food reaches people in need

Local food pantires, soup kitchens, shelters, school programs and backpack programs receive food from the foodbank and then give it to those in need.
