Food banks supply low-income families with the food they need to survive. The National Food Bank, also known as, Feeding America, works with several other local food banks to make sure that families stay fed and children stay healthy. The National Food Bank and the smaller food banks share a close relationship, and work together to keep families fed.

The local food bank:

  • Obtain food from the local businesses and farmers.
  • Receive donations from local corporations and individuals who donate. They use these donations to help low-income families.
  • Receive food from Feeding America and distribute it to low-income individuals in their community.
  • Hold a close relationship with the National Food Bank and the other local food banks.
  • Promote food safety.
  • Work hard, on a local level, to set up better government programs for families and individuals in need.

The National Food Bank:

  • Obtain food from large manufacturers and the government.
  • Acquire donations from larger corporations and individual donors.
  • Distribute food to local food banks.
  • Hold a close relationship with the other food banks.
  • Promote food safety.
  • Work hard, on a national level, to set up better government programs for families and individuals in need.

Feeding America is a respectable charity. The National Food Bank distributes food to the many local food banks in the United States. The local food banks then distribute this food to soup kitchens and food cupboards. These food cupboards and soup kitchens feed low-income families and individuals, and help them stay healthy.
