Give Food

We gladly accept all food donations large or small! Donated food is essential to how Peoria Area Food Bank serves those in need. While food drives and individual giving are extremely valuable, large scale food donations are critical to meet the growing needs of the increasing number of people relying on food assistance. The scale of our work requires the support of donors in the manufacturing, distribution, retail, agriculture and food service industries. Only through the ongoing support of food industry donors can Peoria Area Food Bank continue to provide for the more than 250,000 individuals and families that utilize our services each year.

Every year, the Peoria Area Food Bank receives approximately forty percent of its food from local food donations. You can make a difference by donating food.
