  • Founded in 1979

  • A network of 13 food banks distributed 2.5 million pounds of food during it’s first year in operation!

  • Current network consists of nearly 200 regional food banks, each distributing 1 billion pounds of donated food annually

Benefiting agencies1
Benefiting Agencies

  • The only individuals who directly benefit from the Food Bank (without being connected to a non-profit agency) are those who receive food from the Community Soup Kitchen and the Kids’ Café.

Donor agency growth
Donor/Agency Growth

  • The Food Bank is constantly growing with the addition of new donors, agencies, and volunteers daily!

  • Various products including fresh produce are delivered to agencies, programs, and other authorized drop points in the community via the Manna Truck.


  • I interviewed Will Robinson, V.P. of Operations for an insight on obstacles that the Food Bank faces.


  • First, briefly describe your duties as Vice President of Operations.

    • Oversee operation of inventory: receiving controlling, distribution

    • Set employee projects

    • See that overtime is non-existent

    • Monitor and implement Osha and other food safety standards


  • What are some general obstacles that the Food Bank faces?

    • Rotating perishable goods and distributing them in a timely fashion. There is currently 10,000 sq. feet of refrigeration space: this is not big enough!!

    • More expensive items that are needed (hygienic, personal care, meats) do not get donated enough.

    • Short handed for servicing member agencies


  • What plans are being made to aid the obstacles faced by the Food Bank?

    • Plans are in place to increase perishable food storage areas (may take up to five years)

  • In your opinion, what is the agency’s most prided (in terms of success and growth) community program?

    • Kids’ Café: feeds many children!


  • In terms of growth, where do you see the Food Bank in five years?

    • Increase in member agencies served, increase in servicing families among working poor (not necessarily poor and homeless) that do not make enough for ends to meet
