How a Food Bank Works

  1. Food and Funds are Donated
    Food and grocery products are donated from manufactures, retailers, corporations and the public. Donated funds are used for the purchase, transportation, warehousing and distribution of food.
  2. Products Come to the Food Bank
    Product is delivered or Three Square sends drivers to pick-up food and grocery items.
  3. Product is Sorted and Distributed
    Food and grocery product is properly sorted, inventoried, stored and repacked (bulk product) for distribution to member Program Partners.
  4. Program Partners Receive Food
    Non-profit and faith-based organizations including church pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and schools who work on the front lines to help those in need receive food and grocery product from Three Square.
  5. Food Reaches Those in Need
    Nearly 100,000 men, women, children and seniors receive food through Three Square and our Program Partners each and every month.
