Food Bank vs. Food Pantry
The difference…and the alliance
At Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, we solicit, store and distribute food and critical grocery products to qualifying agencies who serve the public directly. Among those agencies are food pantries, soup kitchens, halfway homes, and emergency shelters.
The food bank is the warehouse for millions of pounds of food and other products that go out to the community. The pantry functions as the arms that reach out to that community directly.
Food banks and food pantries—they are not the same. But they share the same commitment.
At Gleaners, we are proud of our partnership with food pantries, and many other organizations, that act with us on the belief that nobody should ever go to bed hungry.
