Stories are a powerful tool in fighting hunger!

Food Bank of Alaska wants to hear why you care about hunger, whether you are a volunteer, donor, advocate or someone who has experienced hunger first-hand. If you’re not sure what to write about, you could tell us about your experience with any of the following:

  • Using emergency food or food assistance (including food pantries, SNAP/food stamps, summer meal program, etc.)
  • A time when food assistance helped you get back on your feet
  • Losing your job in this tough economy
  • Having trouble making ends meet or having to choose between food and rent, medical bills, or other expenses
  • Difficulty accessing food or services where you live
  • Living on a fixed income
  • A memorable experience you had as a Food Bank of Alaska advocate or volunteer
  • The reason you donate to Food Bank of Alaska

If you have any questions or would prefer to tell your story to someone, please contact Destinyy Wideman, Marketing & Communications Coordinator, at 907-222-3121 or
