OUR MISSION IS SUSTAINED BY A COMMUNITY OF GIVERS.
They are individuals who live and work here in Adams County. They are men and women in the business sector that have a stake in the community. They are people who represent foundations whose sole purpose is to provide help to organizations that help those less fortunate. Food distribution to needy families would not be possible without the generous support of these and others in the community. From August 1, 2015 – July 31, 2016 our donors enabled us to alleviate hunger in the county by distributing over 2 million pounds of food of which 59,916 thousand pounds was fresh produce and 470,173 thousand pounds was staple food, 718,096 thousand pounds was purchased and 750,000 was bread, meat and other perishables to more than 478,000 people. In addition, 7,295 senior food boxes came into the hands of low income, 60 and older individuals.
ADAMS COUNTY FOOD BANK is the largest organization in the area working to alleviate hunger and its companion problems: chronic undernutrition, heart disease, and obesity.
By partnering with community organizations and by distributing food directly into the hands of those who are needy, ACFB is making 3,000 nutritious food distributions each month. We provide help to mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, and grandparents.
