“For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor perishes forever.” Psalm 9:18


Mandarin Food Bank opened in April of 1991 in a 900 square foot building with no heat or plumbing.  We are an instrument of St. Joseph’s Social Concerns Committee. Our mission statement is: To provide emergency food and clothing to those in need in the Mandarin community.


We are a ministry run entirely by volunteers.  Since the start our ministry has felt the love and support of the Mandarin community. We have grown in space and numbers over the years, and we have made many changes, yet we still feel that love and support and we are truly grateful for it.

We are deeply grateful for the donations we receive.

The Food Bank served 29,078 people last year.  We are very thankful to our loyal donors and volunteers. 

The Mandarin Food Bank would like to give a very big thank you to the Knights of Columbus at St. Joseph's for our new walk-in freezer.
