About FTV

ABOUT FEEDING THE VALLEY FOOD BANK

FTV Bio

 


Feeding the Valley Food Bank was founded in 1983 in Columbus, Ga. by a group of church and community leaders who wanted there to be a central source of food for people in need in the community. The first load of food came from the Atlanta Food Bank and weighed 1500 lbs. Feeding the Valley Food Bank distributes an average of more than 600,000 pounds of food on a monthly basis; approximately 8 million pounds annually to 14 counties in Georgia and Alabama.

Food Distribution Programs

  • Food Distribution is our original mission. We gather food from national retail stores, transport it and bring it to our warehouse where it is sorted and inspected. We have more than 260 non-profit partner agencies from our 14 county service area that shop in our warehouse and provide the delivery channel to reach food insecure* individuals and families in their communities. These agencies are churches and non-profit organizations that provide health and human assistance services.  Some examples:  Open Door Community House, Valley Rescue Mission, Easter Seals, Salvation Army, Boys and Girls Club, YMCA and many others.
  • Kids Café:  Through the Kids Café Program, more than 1500 hot, nutritious meals are prepared and delivered every day from Feeding the Valley to children after school. 
  • Senior Meals: Meals are prepared every morning and delivered to the elderly and homebound citizens.
  • Mobile Pantry Program:  The Mobile Pantry Program is designed to reach the more rural areas in the service area and provides food boxes packed by volunteers that are distributed along with frozen meat, fresh produce and dairy items.  In a month, more than 8,000 mobile pantry food boxes are distributed.
  • Donations!  Food, Funds and Time! Financial Donations and Food Donations are extremely important to Feeding the Valley.  $1 can provide 6 meals for a family in need and food drives are an essential part of our operations.
