Sarasota-based All Faiths Food Bank was recently recognized by Feeding America as one of the top four food banks in the country. Feeding America made the announcement during its fall leadership virtual summit, which honors food bank leaders for their local community-building and contributions in the 2019 program year. All Faiths was also recognized as a food bank whose methodology is on the cutting edge, using data to drive its work to ensure resources are allocated with maximum efficiency and innovation. 

Efforts that distinguished All Faiths include its "Campaign Against Summer Hunger," which has raised more than $10 million to feed nearly 100,000 children since its inception in 2014; the DeSoto Food and Resource Center, serving predominantly Hispanic residents and agricultural workers; changing the mission and creating infrastructures and processes that incorporate community health principles; and its participation in the groundbreaking study that resulted in the Meal Deficit Metric, which is changing the way food banks address hunger in their communities. All Faiths was also recognized for its culture, which emphasizes diversity, excellence, collaboration and teamwork. It is also seen as an essential partner, supporting Feeding America and Feeding Florida. All Faiths CEO Sandra Frank is currently the board chair of Feeding Florida.
