The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank provides an average of 271 meals to senior citizens and 66 veterans each month. Started in 1988 and provides food to over 70 non-profit agencies for their feeding programs throughout the entire Kenai Peninsula Borough. We believe adequate food and shelter are the vital keys to empowering hungry individuals to become productive citizens. The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank facility is a supportive and nurturing environment; and, all people are consistently encouraged to reach their highest potential through initiative and creativity. The Food Bank staff facilitates this growth with friendliness and optimism for each individual, helping them to regain their dignity and hope.
“We feed people because no one deserves to be hungry”, the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank, Inc.’s stated mission is to promote public awareness of hunger issues.
Staff and volunteers collect, process and distribute reclaimed foods and donated items to Kenai Peninsula residents through four distinct programs. There is no charge for food obtained here. Agency members pay a small shipping and handling fee for items accquired in the warehouse program.
