Stewardship. Accountability. Efficiency. Effectiveness. These are the cores values guiding Second Harvest Food Bank in the management of all food, funds and in-kind donations entrusted to us on behalf of the hungry and others in need across our 18-county service area.
Based on the national wholesale value of food from an annual study performed by KPMG LLP for Feeding America, we calculate that for every $1 donated, we can distribute $12 (wholesale value) worth of food, which is the equivalent of 7 nutritious meals. In 2009-2010 were able to distribute over 13 million pounds of food and grocery related products, much of which might otherwise would have gone to waste.
Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC is an excellent steward of donated funds. 95% of all expenses are program related - food distribution and other programs for those in need. Administrative costs account for only 2% of expenses and fundraising costs account for only 3% of expenses.
