The mission of the Tri-State Food Bank is to improve the quality of life for our community’s food insecure families and children by providing adequate food and nutrition through our network of local charities and organizations feeding the hungry. Items are received from a variety of sources including food drives, local grocery retail stores, food manufacturers, local farmers, USDA commodities, and Feeding America. After careful inspection the food goes to non-profit agencies such as food pantries, soup kitchens, programs serving hot meals to senior citizens, neighborhood outreach programs, day care programs, supplemental and emergency relief programs, summer feeding sites, rehabilitation programs, after-school programs for children, and areas experiencing a disaster such as tornado or flood.
The Tri-State Food Bank distributes more than 8 million pounds of food each year to over 250 feeding programs in 33 counties in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky.
