Partner Agencies

About Our Partner Agencies:

The Food Bank of Manatee is the largest hunger-relief organization in Manatee County, distributing over 4 million pounds of food in 2018. Our network of partner agencies includes more than 100 local pantries, agencies, soup kitchens, shelters, child nutrition assistance, and social service organizations.

Food from The Food Bank of Manatee is distributed to individuals and families in need through one of our partner agencies. To work most efficiently, we do not provide food directly to the public from The Food Bank of Manatee. Instead, if you or someone you know is in need of food, please call 211 or visit one of our agencies, and they will help to get you started.

In the midst of this unprecedented circumstance, we are working to fulfill the rising needs and costs of our programs to ensure essential nutrition is available to our home-bound seniors, children, and families who do not have access to meals.

We are beyond grateful for the overwhelming response from those interested in volunteering at Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee! The numbers of those wanting to volunteer exceeds what we can currently accommodate due to the guidelines issued by the CDC. The needs in our community are great and will continue to grow. We encourage everyone interested in lending a hand to mobilize a non-perishable food collection or purchase items online to be delivered directly to us.

Specifically needed items: canned vegetables, baby cereal & formula, canned fruits, mac ‘n’ cheese, peanut butter, jelly, boxed rice, boxed pasta, canned soups, canned meat, 100% fruit juices, breakfast bars, oatmeal, powdered milk, apple sauce, dried beans, trail mix, and healthy cereals. Please avoid glass containers.
