The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri (TFB) is a hunger-relief network distributing food at no cost to recipients at over 140 partner agencies and 153 schools. The Food Bank is located in Columbia, Missouri and serves a 32-county area that covers more than 18,000-square miles in central and northeast Missouri, reaching the state borders of both Iowa and Illinois (approximately one-third of the state). We provide additional assistance to children in low-income families, senior citizens and veterans. Since 1981, The Food Bank has been on the front lines in the fight against hunger, providing millions of pounds of groceries to the working poor, single-parent households, children, older adults, veterans, the homeless and others living in poverty. This includes many families grappling with severe and multi-generational poverty, but it also includes individuals who may have found themselves unexpectedly in need after a job loss, illness or other emergency. In 2020, The Food Bank distributed 32 million pounds of food, with a wholesale value of over $50 million. The Food Bank is a drug-free work place and equal opportunity employer.
