What your support accomplishes – 4 meals for every $1
You made it possible for Food Bank of Alaska to distribute more than ever in 2015 – over 6.8 million pounds of food – that’s 5.7 million meals – throughout the state. Our success depends on you - community members, businesses small and large, food and transportation industry donors and foundations. Fully 96% of your support goes to feed hungry people.
Your generous donations keep our fleet of trucks on the road five days a week picking up donated food that would otherwise be wasted. You keep our warehouse running and cover the cost of shipping food throughout the state, often by air, when government support runs out. At Thanksgiving your donation helps us purchase turkeys for 10,000 families, and in December your gift provides holiday groceries l for 4,000 more families. Because of you we can purchase trailers full of food to supplement food donations, especially during the summer when supply is low and the need is high. We also use funds for advocacy and policy efforts to feed more people in need and tackle the root causes of hunger.
