Join Our Hunger-Fighting Network!

There are two ways for Alaskan organizations to join us in the fight against hunger in Alaska. An organization may become either a regular Food Bank of Alaska partner agency, or a TEFAP emergency food box distribution site. You may complete the relevant forms and fax them to (907) 277-7368 or mail them to FBA, 2121 Spar Avenue, Anchorage, AK 99501. A staff person will then contact you about your program.

Partner Agencies
More than 300 organizations are members of our network of nonprofits. These agencies directly access donated food products from our warehouse. Partner agencies can access a variety of product, including produce, dairy, and bread items, at our facility in Anchorage. There is a $100 yearly membership fee and a minimal per-pound handling fee to help offset the high cost of shipping donated food to Alaska. We can also ship orders outside Anchorage, though agencies will need to pay for such transport. To qualify, an organization must be a registered charity under IRS code 501(c)(3) or a recognized church and must demonstrate that donated food is going to the needy.

Relevant forms:

Emergency USDA Food Box(TEFAP) Site
The Emergency Food Assistance Program, or TEFAP, makes USDA commodities available to individuals and families who meet basic low-income guidelines. Surplus dry goods and frozen items are included in a standardized monthly food box. TEFAP food items and shipping are free to the organization hosting a distribution site. Because this is a federal program, paperwork such as individual applications, inventory, and monthly reporting must be clearly maintained. Becoming a TEFAP distribution site makes most sense for organizations in remote communities, where shipping can be costly, or to large-volume food box distribution sites in neighborhoods where food instability is greatest.

Relevant forms:

Though the forms for registering with us are available here, our staff is always available and would be pleased to discuss your program's special interests. We welcome any and all questions and interest from your organization! Please contact Jennifer Lewis, Agency Relations Manager at (907) 272-3663 or e-mail jlewis@foodbankofalaska.org
