About: All Faiths Food Bank(AFFB) was founded by a group of individuals who, through their respective organizations, were feeding the hungry. They combined efforts in 1989 to incorporate as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Since then, AFFB has been the only Food Bank serving Sarasota and DeSoto Counties. It has been a Certified Member of Feeding America since 1990.
In 2016, the Food Bank changed its mission representing a shift in how we address hunger and an understanding that hunger is a health issue. Since then AFFB’s new mission has been: Together with our partners, we provide healthy solutions to end hunger in our community.
In 2018 a new brand was born – one that is fresh, engaging, and mission-implicit in design. The new brand logo visually re-defines and energizes AFFB underneath our mission – to provide healthy solutions to end hunger in our community.
As the food bank grows and develops our number one priority is, and always will be, to feed the hungry.
