Food Bank of Alaska believes that no one deserves to be hungry. Since 1979, we have been securing donated food for nonprofit agencies to distribute to hungry Alaskans.



GIFT Holiday Food & Toy Distribution
December 15 & 16

This December the Anchorage community will collaborate to provide a festive holiday meal and toys for children to families in need. Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help make this event a success! There are many ways go get involved: volunteer, organize a toy or food drive, or make a financial donation. If you or someone you know needs assistance with food and toys this holiday season, look for your zip code and come to Sullivan Arena on your designated day, or call 2-1-1.

You Blessed Our Neighbors

We are happy to report the total numbers are in and the Valley Blessing Project served 2,171 households and the Anchorage Blessing Project served 7,822 households. That’s nearly 10,000 families who will get to share in the tradition of giving thanks over a turkey and all the fixings this Thanksgiving. Your collaboration along with the thousands of volunteers, donors, and scores of organizations made this Thanksgiving possible for so many in our community. We heard from volunteers who come year after year to the event to help hand out food. One volunteer, George, said, “I do it because it’s just the right thing, the good thing, to do to help others during the holidays.”

We were able to work with clients like Abigail, a single mom to her three-year-old daughter. This was the first year Abigail reported needing to use this type of food assistance to get through the holiday. Her little one was quick to chime in, “I’m so excited to eat yummy Thanksgiving food!” This event is truly a blessing to all who participate. Thank you to everyone who helped to make it happen. Happy Thanksgiving and many Blessings to you and your families!

Holding a food drive? Most needed items

Families with limited financial resources often have fresh fruits and vegetables at the bottom of their list because they are expensive. They end up buying highly cheap, highly processed foods that are high in calories but are low in nutrition. Help supplement restricted choices choices by selecting healthy and nutritious foods. Here is a list of most needed items. Find more information about holding a food drive on our food drive page.
