Major Food Donors give over 1.3 million pounds of food each year!

The REFB acquires and distributes over 14 million pounds of food annually. The majority of donated food received comes from regional and national manufacturers, retailers, and farmers through our affiliation with other food banks and Feeding America.

About 15% of the food distributed is donated by individuals through local food drives and by local businesses.
