Help someone feed their family.

Facing Hunger Foodbank Italiano Festival

Saturday August 17, 2024


Facing Hunger Foodbank is thrilled to announce the return of the ITALIANO FESTIVAL in 2024, after a 4-year hiatus!

Many of our neighbors are unable to afford basic needs like groceries.

From young children to the elderly, hunger impacts the lives of people in every area of our region. Limited access to healthy food can have a wide impact on the lives of individuals and our community as a whole.

But, together we can face hunger in the Tri-State.

How We Fight Hunger Head On.

We’re on a mission to feed people struggling with food insecurity by distributing nutritious food and groceries through our vast agency network.

Donations are made to the Foodbank

Food is either donated or purchased by Facing Hunger Foodbank.

Through our vast network of member agencies, efficient food sourcing practices, and program-focused approach to expense management, we provide a great return-on-investment to our donors and community.

A $1 donation will provide 9 meals to local families.  

Food Comes to Our Distribution Center

Once we receive food, it comes to our distribution center where hundreds of volunteers each year help us organize, pack, and distribute around 11 million pounds of food annually.

We Distribute Food through Our Programs & Partnerships

Once the food leaves our distribution center, our team distributes the food donations through our various programs and our 248 partner agencies throughout 17 counties.

By accessing food from the Foodbank rather than purchasing from commercial outlets, each of these Partner Agencies have expanded resources to advance their own missions.

Food Lands on the Table of Our Neighbors in Need

No one in our community should go hungry.

Through local soup kitchens, neighborhood centers, family crisis centers, and homeless shelters for adults and children, we provide nutritious canned, boxed, fresh, frozen, and prepared food to nearly 130,000 individuals annually.

“I am a 27-year-old single mother of one girl. I am a full-time worker but I still struggle financially at times. I don’t receive child support at all due to the father being incarcerated. This is the third time we have gotten food, we greatly appreciate it. Thank you!”
– Morgan, Pantry Guest

Everyone has a role to play in ending hunger.
