F2E Initiative

Supporting good nutrition through Foods 2 Encourage 

At the Foodbank we are committed to ending hunger and food insecurity
through good nutrition. Bringing us one step closer to improving the
quality of the foods available at the Foodbank is our Foods 2 Encourage
campaign. Together we can improve the health of Santa Barbara County.

We seek to engage the community in a new approach to donations by identifying the most nutritious fresh and nonperishable foods for those struggling with hunger and food insecurity. And we seek to make it easy for the community to help, with our new food donation guidelines.

We welcome food donations from all kinds of efforts, from canned food drives to our backyard bounty program.
