For over 35 years, the Great Plains Food Bank has been ending hunger through community partnerships. Our goal is to not only help our hungry neighbors today, but provide the means for everyone to be fed tomorrow. We are known for distributing great amounts of food quickly and efficiently. In 2018 alone, we collected, warehoused and distributed nearly 15 million pounds of food that otherwise would have gone to waste, providing 12.5 million meals.
The problem of hunger is solvable. But we can't do it alone. Thanks to thousands of partners engaged in our day-to-day work of hunger-relief, we touch the lives of 1 in 9 individuals who seek emergency assistance though our programs and services and partner network of charitable feeding programs operating across North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota. We invite you to learn more about the Great Plains Food Bank and join us in our work to create hunger-free communities.
