Hunger is a significant problem throughout Citrus, Hernando and Sumter counties. According to the 2018 ALICE Report (Asset-Limited, Income-Restrained and Employed), 50% of households in Citrus County struggle to pay for basic needs. That number was 45% in 2012, indicating a steady rise over the past five years. The state average is 46%.

The Mission of the Community Food Bank (CFB) is to acquire and distribute nutritious, quality food to pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters throughout our area. Together with our volunteers and donors, we will promote public awareness, inspire community involvement, and strive to end hunger and nourish hope for those in need of our support.

The CFB helps feed more than 60,000 neighbors in need each month. We have distributed over 14 million pounds of food since 2013, providing over 21 million meals to our community!

The fight to end hunger is a continuous battle, which the Community Food Bank hopes to win. We use resources from donations and volunteers to reach out to various Food Pantries, Soup Kitchens, and Shelters who in turn provide needed food to the thousands of individuals and families who are in need of a helping hand. Hunger is an issue that affects children as well as adults. As members of our community it’s necessary that all of us lend a helping hand and see that everyone here is given a fair chance. We are a non-profit company so your donations only go to helping those who need help. Please take the time to see how you can get involved in the fight to end hunger and nourish hope.
