Program History:

The Food Group, formerly Emergency Foodshelf Network, is a local hunger relief nonprofit focused on healthy food access. We provide nutritious food and support services to over 200 hunger relief partners, including food shelves, on-site meal programs, mobile food shelf sites, and Fare For All sites throughout the state. Food shelf and on-site meal program partners receive free donations from The Food Group and supplement what isn’t donated by purchasing basic staples at or below wholesale cost through our bulk purchasing program.

Additional Information:

Opportunities involve working on our small farm located on the property of the food bank during the spring and summer where all food grown is donated to local food shelves, and in the fall harvesting apples from orchards and backyard fruit trees that would otherwise go to waste and donating to those in need. There are also opportunites packing food in our warehouse during the winter season.
