About Us

The Huntington Area Food Bank is a 501 (c)3 Non-Profit organization affiliated with Feeding America, the largest hunger relief agency in the United States. We distribute USDA commodities through the TEFAP program. The emergency food assistance program is designed to alleviate hunger amongst low income individuals and to service areas damaged by natural disasters.           

We have partnerships with retail grocers, restaurants, farmers, civic organizations, private donors, food manufacturers and processors. We serve a client base of 113,500 food insecure individuals through our 200 member agencies in 12 West Virginia counties, 4 counties of northeastern Kentucky and Lawrence County, Ohio. In 2013 HAFB distributed 5.2 million pounds of food, water and fresh produce. Our goal is to work to alleviate hunger in our service area.
