Because it takes more than food to end hunger.


More Than Food is an initiative for building capacity in food banks and food pantries to more effectively address the root causes of food insecurity. The purpose of More Than Food is to help pantries offer healthy client choice, connect clients with community services, and instill a culture that is welcoming so clients can set and reach goals. More Than Food is designed to help pantries offer more choice, connection and culture.

Through Foodshare’s Institute for Hunger Research & Solutions, we provide practical tools, training materials and guidance to help food banks and pantries build capacity.
