Florida Association of Food Banks
The Bread of the Mighty Food Bank (BMFB) was established in 1987 to serve the counties of Alachua, Lafayette, Levy, Dixie, and Gilchrist in North Central Florida. BMFB functions by acquiring, storing, and distributing food and basic essentials via the support of 130 plus agency partners and more than 800 community volunteers. These agencies include soup kitchens, food pantries, and shelters. The food bank also provides direct benevolent and emergency food assistance to those who are food insecure.

BMFB is a Partner Distribution Organization (PDO) of Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic, hunger-relief charity. We operate within the Second Harvest of Central Florida Food Bank area of responsibility.

BMFB is also an active member of the Florida Association of Food Banks (FAFB). FAFB represents the only regulated and monitored network of food banks that covers all 67 Florida counties. FAFB is affiliated with Feeding America.
BMFB serves an area that spans over 3,500 square miles covering five counties in North Central Florida. Notable cities in this region include Gainesville, Waldo, Alachua, Chiefland, Cedar Key, Williston, Cross City, Mayo, Bell, and Trenton.
