Description
The Feed America First Mission is "to provide food to those who feed the hungry". FAF was founded in 2000 to provide a reliable source of food supplies to agencies engaged in hunger relief as part of their ministry. The food supplies they seek are donated by manufacturers, distributors, growers, and other charitable organizations, and are distributed at no cost to their 250+ client agencies. Their focus is upon those charities in small towns, poor counties, and rural areas generally underserved by other, larger charities. Charities may qualify by proving tax-exempt status, and by agreeing to donate all goods freely, without sale, barter, or administrative fees.

Feed America First conducts monthly food distributions at ftheir Mid-South venues: Loaves and Fishes in Sheffield, AL, Petra Ministries in Selmer, TN, Salem UMC in Cookeville, TN, and at their Distribution Center in Murfreesboro, TN. Each of their qualified agencies (over 180 at the end of 2009) is invited to pick up 500-1,000 pounds of food at no charge to augment their own supplies, with the variety and quantity determined by FAF.Program:Perishables ProgramBudget: $62,000Category: Food, Agriculture & NutritionPopulation Served: Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General Program Description:  FAF receives large donations of perishable foods suc=h as baked goods, dairyproducts, and produce almost daily.
