Who We Are
The Alaska Food Coalition - the AFC - is a statewide group of 81 non-profit, faith-based and state agencies working everyday to help feed hungry Alaskans in communities like Fairbanks, Anchorage, Kenai, Soldotna, Nome, Dillingham, Bethel, Juneau, Kodiak, and many more. Who are current AFC members around the state?
What We Do
Alaska has a hunger problem. Every day thousands of Alaskan men, women, families, and children wake up hungry and go to bed hungry. Our job is helping to make sure that does not happen. That is why the members of the AFC have joined together with the help of our partner, the state Department of Health and Social Services, to strengthen and coordinate public and private food and nutrition assistance programs in the state.
The State of Alaska's Legacy—a Gracious Helping Hand
The state has funded the AFC since its inception. Funds have been used to:
- Build Capacity to Combat Hunger in Alaskan Communities through our Grant Program
- Develop Innovative and Effective Projects to meet Alaska's Hunger Needs
- Educate Policy Makers about Alaska's very real Hunger Problem
- Purchase Food and distribute it to Hungry Alaskans throughout the state
- Distribute Food to Hungry Communities
- Meet yearly as a group to Network and Brainstorm Solutions to Alaskan Hunger
- Discover and eliminate barriers to feeding hungry Alaskans.
