Marion Polk Food Share works with a network of partners to distribute the food we collect. All of our Partner Agencies are independent, not for profit, and/or religious organizations. We are grateful for the hard work that these Agencies do to feed people in our community. After all, it takes a strong community to make sure that everyone is fed.
