We create healthy food access for vulnerable populations, and we provide that food free of charge. We have identified areas of need, and have programs to address the gap. We deliver groceries to seniors’ doorsteps, provide meals to children at risk of hunger when schools close, and partner with physicians to serve patients in need.
Due to our large footprint, we partner with local nonprofits to enable them to better serve their community. We have over 255 Partner Agencies across the state. To learn more about our agencies, click here!
We make healthy food accessible by bringing food pantries directly to areas of need. These mobile food distributions are contact-free, drive up opportunities to get food in your area. These follow a “Truck to Trunk” model, where we drive the food out, pre-packed into boxes, and then distribute it to anyone who comes. There is no income requirement or identification needed, and you are welcome to carpool. Each adult in the car qualifies to get a household food box.
The food at these Mobile Pantry distributions is nutritious and varied, and we aim to provide meat, fruit, vegetables, and dairy. There is a limited amount of food at each distribution, so be sure to arrive early. You can find a calendar of distribution events on our Find Food page.
Across our 12-county footprint, Community Food Bank partners with over 255 Partner Agencies, including soup kitchens, shelters, church food pantries, children’s programs, and veterans’ programs to get food into the hands of our neighbors. This network of Partner Agencies enables existing nonprofits to reach more people. We provide them with food, and they distribute it free of charge.
If you or someone you know is in need, the most effective way to get emergency food is through an Agency in your community. There is a tool on our Find Food page that will connect you to an agency near you.

Our Kids Meals Campaign provides children with year-round access to healthy meals. We do this through three programs:
Senior hunger is often hidden. Community Food Bank is working to meet the needs of our seniors through several avenues.
At the Food Bank, sustainability is key. Our fleet of refrigerated trucks is on the road 5 days per week picking up donated food from our retail partners to distribute throughout our community.
We partner with healthcare providers to ensure food-insecure patients from infants to seniors have the nourishment they need in order to stay healthy.
We assure that our neighbors in need access to free, healthy food. Our healthcare partners provide confidential, food insecurity screenings in a medical setting, and we make sure that the food we provide follows physicians’ recommendations.
We currently serve:
During times of crisis, the Community Food Bank is ready to step in and provide emergency assistance when and where needed most.
