The Fairbanks Community Food Bank is the largest food bank facility in Alaska. We collect local surplus food and give it to people who need it, and also distribute USDA food through two programs, TEFAP and CSFP. Last year the food bank collected over 2 million pounds of local surplus food and distributed that food throughout Interior Alaska. Our primary focus is the Fairbanks North Star Borough in the Tanana Valley, road connected villages in Interior Alaska, and we also work through 40 Tanana Chiefs Conference villages for USDA products. The primary purpose of this food bank is to salvage, recycle and provide an organized facility for our Interior communities to SHARE their resources.
Food costs vary greatly and the prices above are only representations. We stretch every $1 donated to $4, primarily depending on the communities we serve to SHARE
their resources, 95% is in operating costs associated with maintaining vehicles and a warehouse to collect and store the food needed for distibution. The money you
donate will go towards no child in Interior Alaska going to bed hungry: either with food purchases or through paying general operation costs.
