Distribution to Foodbank Non-Profit Partners


By supporting the Foodbank, you are supporting the good work of 300 nonprofit partners and programs countywide. Below is a sampling of some of our local nonprofit partners showing how many pounds (and the meal conversion) of nutritious food and produce the Foodbank provided them last year, the fair market value and cost to the non-profit. The Foodbank subsidizes 100% of its non-profit partners’ produce needs and the costs associated (purchasing, transportation and storage) to distribute 4.85 million of produce annually, while some items are purchased by the Foodbank on behalf of non-profit partners at deeply discounted bulk rates.

“Without the support of the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County we would not be able to provide our members with meals and healthy snack options when schools are out of session,” Ashlyn Shrahle, Club Director United Boys & Girls Club of SB County, Goleta Unit.

“The Foodbank staff has been phenomenal and their humility and passion have allowed CHC to help the people of the central coast in our efforts to better the health outcomes of our community creating food access. We want to thank the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County for being key allies in our mission to bring health and wellness to our patients. Thank You!” Noemi Velasquez, Outreach Program for Community Health Centers
