  • Where are there gaps in service in the Alaskan charitable food network?


Collecting the Data

  • Facility and Equipment Survey mailed to all non-profit food programs in the state

  • Community Survey of all Alaskan communities with a population over 50

  • Stored in customized database


Existing Food Programs

  • Condition of Facility

  • Type of Equipment Needed

Existing Food ProgramsRecommendations

  • Attempt to fund all facility and equipment needs


Gaps in Service

  • Poverty Indicators

    (identify areas of need)

  • Food Distribution

    (present service in areas of need)

  • Infrastructure Indicators

    (opportunities in areas of need)


Gaps in Service - Poverty IndicatorsCensus Districts above Alaska Poverty Rate (9.4%)

Summary & Next Steps

  • The Alaska Food Coalition will research funding requirements and opportunities for all unmet equipment and facility needs.

  • 9 Areas of Need across the state:

    Aleutians East, Bethel, Dillingham, Nome, Northwest Arctic, Skagway-Hoonah-Angoon, Southeast Fairbanks, Wade Hampton, and Yukon-Koyukuk.

  • Present service weak in 5 Areas of Need:

    Aleutians East, Bethel, Southeast Fairbanks, Wade Hampton, and Yukon-Koyukuk (Special Areas of Need)

  • Opportunities for new partners in all Areas of Need.

  • The Alaska Food Coalition should assess interest and models for new programs in all Areas of Need, prioritizing the 5 Special Areas of Need.
