About Us

Our Mission: Partnering with our community to serve our hungry neighbors today and create a hunger-free tomorrow

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides food for families in need through more than 140 partner agencies across northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the Sierra in California. We serve more than 91,000 people every month, almost half of whom are children and seniors.

The Food Bank grew from a small pantry to a regional distribution center. We incorporated in 1983 and have operated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization for more than 35 years. Last fiscal year, we provided more than 29.9 million meals for neighbors who faced hunger.

We are a proud member of Feeding America, a network of more than 200 food banks and the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, providing more than 4 billion meals to nearly every community in the U.S.



Our Vision for the Future

Healthy food. Every person. Every day.


How We Feed Neighbors in Need

Working with our network of partner agencies, volunteers, and donors, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada is constantly accepting and distributing donated and purchased food. Our drivers and program staff work tirelessly to deliver food to emergency food pantries, congregate feeding sites, shelters, senior centers, and child nutrition program sites.
