Join Capital Campaign
What does a food bank do if the warehouse you’ve occupied for 25 years is way too small for the job? If you’re Food Bank of Alaska and your goal is more food to more Alaskan communities, you launch the Nourish Alaska’s Future capital campaign for a bigger, better-equipped warehouse. That’s just what we did.
Then COVID-19 hit, and the explosive need of our fellow Alaskans for help to feed themselves and their families made it obvious that we did not have enough warehouse capacity for our important role in the state’s emergency response infrastructure.
Now, generous businesses, foundations, and individual Alaskans have brought us almost to our fundraising goal, and we have purchased a bigger warehouse. We are remodeling and equipping the larger facility and need your help to boost our Nourish Alaska’s Future capital campaign over the top.
After 25 years, our current warehouse (pictured) is too small for the need. We distributed 11 million pounds of food in 2020.
