Food Bank of Alaska
On June 4, 2020 our chapter members voted for Food Bank of Alaska to receive this quarter's collective 100+ Women Who Care Anchorage’s donation!
"No excuse for hunger
With this core belief and a commitment to preventing good food from being wasted, a small group of Anchorage church and community volunteers organized Food Bank of Alaska in 1979 to serve the entire state.
Our role is unique. Food Bank of Alaska works with food industry partners to salvage food that would otherwise go to waste from grocery stores, wholesalers, producers, farmers, and the fishing industry. We also collect food donated by community members and administer government food programs. With your help last year, we distributed more than 7.5 million pounds – 6.2 million meals – statewide to 150 partner food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, and children’s programs feeding their hungry neighbors.
Currently 1 in 7 Alaskans, including 1 in 5 children, struggles with hunger. Your generosity makes it possible for Food Bank of Alaska to feed hungry children, families and seniors."
