BREAD OF THE MIGHTY FOOD BANK ~ 1987-2017
Changing lives one meal at a time.
Supported by the Alachua County Board of County Commission's Community Agency Partnership Program.
Bread of the Mighty Food Bank, celebrating 30 years of serving
the community, is a private non-profit organization. We collect,
sort, store and distribute donated food and basic essentials to
170+ non-profit agency partners such as food pantries,
churches, homeless shelters and other organizations who then distribute food in their communities to directly feed the hungry.
We have a five county service area - Alachua, Dixie, Gilchrist, Lafayette and Levy. We're a Partner Distribution Organization
under Feeding America. Our 20,000 square foot warehouse has 2,600 square feet of cooler and freezer capacity. Thanks to our generous donors, we now have a fleet of 11 trucks and vans.
We're on the road five days a week picking up donated food
from generous retailers and wholesalers that in turn gets
distributed back to the community.
In an effort to keep perishable and fresh items from sitting in
our warehouse, our "Food on the Move" program was established. This ensures fresh & perishable items don't sit in the warehouse
and quickly gets into the hands of those in need.
Every $1 donated Bread of the Mighty can provide up to 7 meals.
