All Faiths Food Bank Responds to Manatee County Food Bank Transition
All Faiths Food Bank is aware of the announcement that Feeding Tampa Bay has elected to end its contractual services with the Food Bank of Manatee, a PLUS programs of Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee. This transition does not involve All Faiths Food Bank and will have no impact on All Faiths or those we serve. Based on Feeding America’s geographical boundaries, All Faiths remains contractually responsible to end hunger for those in need throughout Sarasota and DeSoto Counties. As Manatee County is our neighbor to the north, we are here to offer support and encouragement through this transition and remain totally committed to ending hunger for those who need assistance throughout our region.
All Faiths Food Bank is the only Food Bank serving Sarasota and DeSoto Counties and is the hub of hunger relief in our community. Last year, All Faiths Food Bank distributed 10.2 million pounds of food equating to 8.5 million meals through 188 pantries, soup kitchens, churches, community centers, schools, and programs.
All Faiths is so much more than a Food Bank with innovative programs that include the Campaign Against Summer Hunger, raising food and funds to feed children all summer long, Mobile Farm Markets bringing fresh produce to clients, Mobile Pantries which delivers groceries to areas with highest need, the BackPack Program, ensuring students have food over weekends and holidays, School Pantries, and nutrition education classes for kids, adults and seniors.
Our mission is clear: together with our partners, we provide healthy solutions to end hunger in our community.
