The Food Bank

The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri is a regional disaster and hunger relief network that acquires and distributes millions of pounds of food annually to partner agencies across a 32-county area.

As a member of Feeding America, The Food Bank is able to work with manufacturers, wholesalers, processors, growers, retailers and restaurants to secure donations and food at reduced costs.

The Food Bank partners with 140 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other agencies to ensure food gets into the hands of those who need it most. The Food Bank also works with 150 schools to help students receive nutritious food. They are the only food bank in the state to provide that food at no charge to other organizations. 

Volunteers are critical to their operation, saving us more than $2 million a year in avoided labor costs. Learn more about how you can join the fight against hunger in central and northeast Missouri.
