School is out for the summer and St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance is again assuming sponsorship of the 2013 Summer Food Service Program for Children. The program helps to ease demand for summer food, particularly among children who take part in the free breakfast and lunch programs offered at their schools during the school year.

Volunteers needed to help conduct the Hunger Study


St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance is a member of Feeding America, a network of more than 200 food banks across the U.S. Conducted every four years, Hunger in America, also known as the Hunger Study, is the largest study of charitable food assistance in America. Feeding America and St. Mary’s Food Bank have partnered with Westat, a research firm, to design and execute the study.

Join our volunteer team! Give a little. Get a lot back


We could not ask more of our volunteers, yet these individuals continue to inspire us by giving ever-more generously of their time, effort and talents. Raising awareness of the realities of hunger and poverty, they are essential to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance operations, assisting in the sorting, boxing and bagging of food, providing administrative and fundraising support and acting as advocates to bring about positive change.
