Donations of food and funds are critical to the success of The Food Bank of Manatee in the fight against local hunger. If you have non-perishable food items to drop off, The Food Bank is open for donations Monday - Friday, 8:30 am to 4 pm. 811 23rd Ave East, Bradenton FL 34208 (at the corner of U.S. 301 and 9th St. East).

Food Drives

Food drives are also a very important resource for The Food Bank, resulting in valuable canned food and dry goods. These drives are also a great way to spread the word about The Food Bank of Manatee and the need for hunger prevention in our community. All businesses, schools, civic organizations, and clubs are encouraged to hold food drives. We welcome food drives at any time throughout the year, because hunger has no season.

Our Food Drive Kit has a lot of great information to help you run a successful Food Drive. CLICK HERE for a detailed kit. For a flyer to add your company's name and drive dates, click here. Questions? Call 941-747-4655

Financial Donations

For every dollar we receive, we can provide much more in food assistance through our special purchasing outlets. The Food Bank has a $2.8 million budget, and receives little in grant assistance. The rest of the funding must come from individuals and local fundraisers. More detailed financial information can be obtained by calling our main office at 941-747-4655.
