What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mobile Pantry Program

WOFB delivers a truckload of food right to the people. Mobile pantries are a quick, easy, inexpensive way that any non-profit organization or group can provide mass amounts of help to people who need it. The cost is $500.00 for 5,000 lbs of food. Fast, efficient, and affordable.

Population(s) Served

We provide millions of pounds of food each year to our smaller member agencies throughout our 11 county service area. To become a partner agency that can receive food from us, they must contact us to apply for membership.

Population(s) Served

The local Backpack Program attempts to reduce child hunger, educate students on proper nutrition and promote healthy lifestyles. Each weekend, qualifying children receive nutritious foods to supplement weekend meals at home. This program is designed to provide extra support during weekends for children who typically receive free or reduced priced breakfast and lunch at schools.

Population(s) Served

Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) provides a 32-40 lb box of shelf stable foods along with a 2 lb block of cheese to eligible participants throughout our 11 county service area. Eligible participants must be 60 years of age and older and fall within 130% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. This program currently is provided to 1,383 eligible participants throughout our service area.

Population(s) Served

Our volunteers come from all walks of life: church groups, employment agencies, municipal court, local companies, senior citizen groups and more. Volunteers help with everyday operations and special projects. Opportunities range from general cleaning, loading agency vehicles, repacking bulk foods, packing bags for the Backpack Program or Senior Boxes, to answering phones and helping with mailings. For more information on volunteer opportunities contact WOFB.
