What happens to the food when it gets here?
Like any bank, operating the food bank is based on deposits and withdrawals. It’s a massive effort that would not be possible without the support of donors, volunteers and food bank staff.
About 80,000 pounds of food pass through our warehouses each day. Volunteers help inspect, sort, repack and store the food for distribution, and warehouse staff pick orders for delivery or pick up.
Then our truck drivers deliver or collect food. In one year, they drive more than 250,000 miles. That’s more than 10 trips around the Earth!
