The RIFA Food Bank is a central food distribution center for other nonprofits in the Jackson-Madison County area that serve individuals through their programs, shelters, food pantries, etc. Through food industry donations and community food drives, food contributions come to RIFA to help meet area needs. The Food Bank warehouses the food and with the help from volunteers, sort, pack and re-distribute it to partnering agencies.

Each year we assist 37 nonprofits in 7 counties, distributing over 140,000 pounds of food. The food distributed is acquired through food industry donations and community food drives. Click here to learn about holding a food drive.
