Capacity Building Grant (CBG) Applications Now Closed

The Capacity Building Grant application is now closed. Agency applicants will be notified of their application status prior to June 30, 2015. Thank you.

CBG Application Description and CBG Application to be completed by agency.

The purpose of the CBG program is to improve a Partner Agency's overall food assistance capacity and community impact.

CBG program has two grant levels; each is based on the agency's food distribution totals to their community.

Before an agency initiates work on a CBG application please contact your PAR Team Representative to discuss the project and capacity building potential. See other key grant information in Capacity Build Grant (CBG) Conference Call Notes.

Retail Partnerships Available

The Retail Donation Program is an incredible way for national retailers to engage in local hunger relief efforts. By pairing NTFB Partner Agencies directly with participating local stores, agencies are able to pick up fresh, nourishing food donations without any handling fee costs.

Recall Notices

The FDA regularly posts recall notices to its website. Our Inventory department monitors these and posts updates weekly on the “Food Bank Links” area of the Online Shopping List. We will also sometimes distribute the information via email when it applies to a product we may have received. Check this list frequently for any recalled items.

Sorting 101

NTFB has created a wonderful guide to help you and your volunteers make informed decisions when it comes to sorting through donated goods.
