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.
