There are significant benefits to becoming a partner agency of the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Becoming a Food Bank partner agency enables an organization to more effectively and efficiently support low-income children, families, and seniors through the provision of food and groceries. By collaborating with the food bank, agencies extend their own wonderful missions. This could mean an additional home counselor at an abused women’s shelter, a sports or art program at a home for troubled children, or the ability to pay the medication costs of a senior choosing between food and medication.
The benefits of becoming a partner agency of the food bank include:
- Access to the warehouse supply and inventory of foods available at the food bank
- Access to varieties of fresh produce and breads daily
- Assurances of food safety and proper food inspection of foods and groceries available
- Online ordering
- Pick up and/or delivery of food
- Access to agency shopping area for acquisition of smaller orders and individual need items
- Technical assistance, advice, and support
