Marion Polk Food Share’s Mission

Marion Polk Food Share’s mission is to bring people together to end hunger and its root causes.

We distribute nutritious food for individuals and families to more than 100 local partners, including food pantries and meal sites, and deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities. We operate an urban farm and support a network of community gardens that connect people and their food, and mobilize community members to address systemic issues that lead to hunger. 

Thousands of local volunteers, advocates and donors bring our mission to life every day. 

Statement on Racial Equity

People who experience racism are twice as likely to suffer from food insecurity. Research shows that whether in schools, the workplace, in public or while receiving medical care, people who face repeat discrimination are at a higher risk of going hungry. Our mission is to bring people together to end hunger and its root causes, which include discrimination and racial injustice. Read how the Food Share is working toward change.
