We distribute over 6 million pounds of food annually to a network of food pantries and other nonprofit agencies.
We Serve the Community
FoodLink for Tulare County supplies food directly to more than 30 nonprofit agencies. This food is collected through partnerships with industry, agriculture, government and community members. FoodLink also coordinates food drives, holiday food basket distributions and children’s summer lunches within the community.
More than just a Food Bank
FoodLink for Tulare County obtains food from a variety of sources. Food is donated from food drives, local farms and packing houses, food processors and manufacturers, gleaning groups, groceries, dairies and other available sources. The food is then divided into usable quantities and distributed to our network of agencies. Individuals, corporations, foundations and federal, state and local government provide funding for food distribution and administration.
