The Food Bank’s ultimate mission is to eliminate hunger in the region. The primary function of the Food Bank is to secure large quantities of food for the hungry. More than 13-million pounds of food is channeled through a network of more than 340 partner feeding programs (in a 26-county and 9-city region) that provide food or meals to those in need annually.
