Helping those facing food insecurity through an efficient system of collection and distribution of food and non-food items to non-profit agency partners in our region.

In order to provide food to those facing food insecurity in our region, Channel One Regional Food Bank takes in millions of pounds of surplus food from the food industry. That food is then distributed through our network of 183 member agencies. In 2020, Channel One Regional Food Bank distributed over eight million pounds of food through the hunger relief network that serves 14 counties in Southeast Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. The volume of this hunger relief work would not be possible without the generous support from our many donors in the region.
