About The Middle Georgia Community Food Bank

Purpose
The Middle Georgia Community Food Bank exists to supply food and other commodities to 501(c)(3) Participating Agencies helping needy people in Middle Georgia. The mission of the MGCFB is to provide the maximum amount of food possible to our Participating Agencies at the lowest possible cost to reach the maximum number of needy people.

The explicit purpose of the Food Bank is the salvaging of surplus food. Mistakes in food processing, overproduction, and distribution become a source of supply for the Middle Georgia Community Food Bank.

The Middle Georgia Community Food Bank solicits, transports, sorts, stores, and distributes millions of pounds of food every year to the needy, hungry, and homeless in Middle Georgia through its participating 501(c)(3) charitable, nonprofit agencies in 24 counties of Middle Georgia. Through this service and its in-house programs, the Middle Georgia Community Food Bank is a vital link in the distribution of food, saving agencies millions of dollars in food costs that can be used in their programs for the needy.

You can help! Call 742-3958 or 741-8777.
