Our bold new vision aims to provide 120 million meals annually through food distribution, government assistance enrollment and forceful legislative advocacy – while also looking beyond meals to examine and improve the impact of our efforts in our community. We have received Charity Navigator’s top rating for 12 consecutive years, ranking us among the top one percent of charities nationwide. Please learn more about our efforts at www.accfb.org.

With our new strategic plan, we are setting a bold trajectory for the long-term work required to dismantle the systems that perpetuate poverty, including racism.
