Who We Are

We’re on a mission to solve hunger in Northeast Florida.

Hunger is solvable with resources that already exist.

Feeding Northeast Florida is the largest, most efficient food bank serving Baker, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam & St. Johns Counties. We work with retail partners, manufacturers, and farms to rescue high-quality food that would normally be wasted and transform it into meals for those in need. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are able to purchase additional food resources to meet the needs of Northeast Florida families and individuals who struggle to put food on the table. The support of our partners and individuals like you enables our work to serve our neighbors in need.

But we need your help.

Our team, alongside our hunger-relief network of more than 300 nonprofit partner agencies, like City Rescue Mission, The Sulzbacher Center and The Salvation Army, work tirelessly to not only feed the line but shorten the line. Through innovative direct-service programs and partnership with schools, senior centers, and veteran and active-duty military organizations, Feeding Northeast Florida distributed nearly 31 million pounds (84,500 meals per day) of food last fiscal year to 2.8 million individuals – 32% of whom are children and 18% are older adults.
