It is hard to believe, but it’s a fact that only 14 counties in all of California have more of a food insecurity problem than Santa Barbara County. Through our programs and those of our over 300 local nonprofit member agencies, we are providing food and nutrition education for 1 in 4 people in Santa Barbara County.

When you support the Foodbank, you are helping to move 144,000 children, working families and seniors in our county from hunger into health.
Thanks to your support we are able to provide more and better quality food. Last year we distributed the food needed for more than 9.5 million meals, of which half was fresh produce.
