The Food Bank of Northern Nevada
The Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides emergency food services to families through a network of more than 140 partner agencies in a 90,000 square mile service area throughout northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the sierra in California. We serve more than 95,000 people each month, half of whom are children and seniors. Last fiscal year, we provided more than 13.3 million meals to neighbors who were hungry. The Food Bank also plays a leading role in collaborating with other committed northern Nevada community members and organizations to address the root causes of hunger.
The Food Bank incorporated in 1983 and has operated as a 501C3 non-profit organization for more than 30 years. We have grown from a small pantry to a regional distribution center helping many families who struggle with hunger.
We are a proud member of Feeding America, a network of more than 200 food banks. The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization and provides more than 3.3 billion meals to virtually every community in the United States. Membership means access to millions of pounds of surplus food and grocery donations.
Every $1 donated equals 3 meals for those in need!
