Food Bank of Alaska believes that no one deserves to be hungry. Since 1979, we have been securing donated food for nonprofit agencies to distribute to hungry Alaskans.



You Can Help Make Thanksgiving a Blessing for Our Neighbors

Every Thanksgiving Anchorage and Mat-Su Valley communities come together to make sure that families in need can celebrate the holiday with a turkey dinner just like their neighbors. Last year this project provided groceries to 10,001 families. You can help. To volunteer or donate food for Thanksgiving Blessing in Anchorage, November 24, contact one of the six sites in Anchorage. To help with Valley Blessing, November 22, email or call one of six sites from Palmer to Trapper Creek. You can make a financial donation here. If you need assistance with groceries for Thanksgiving, look for your zip code at one of the sites in Anchorage or Mat-Su or call 2-1-1 to find where you can go.

GIFT, December 15 & 16

This December the Anchorage community will collaborate to provide a festive holiday meal and toys for children to families in need. Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help make this event a success! There are many ways go get involved: volunteer, organize a toy or food drive, or make a financial donation. If you or someone you know needs assistance with food and toys this holiday season, look for your zip code and come to Sullivan Arena on your designated day, or call 2-1-1.

Holding a food drive? Most needed items

Families with limited financial resources often have fresh fruits and vegetables at the bottom of their list because they are expensive. They end up buying highly cheap, highly processed foods that are high in calories but are low in nutrition. Help supplement restricted choices choices by selecting healthy and nutritious foods. Here is a list of most needed items. Find more information about holding a food drive on our food drive page.
