The Alaska Food Coalition (AFC) is a statewide group of over 120 nonprofit organizations and state agencies focusing on hunger and food insecurity in AK
Collectively creating food security for all Alaskans.
The Alaska Food Coalition (AFC) is a statewide group of over 120 nonprofit organizations and state agencies working every day to help hungry Alaskans in communities like Anchorage, Bethel, Fairbanks, Nome, Juneau, Kodiak and many more. The Alaska Food Coalition’s mission is to support these organizations, to strengthen and coordinate public and private food and nutrition assistance programs, and to educate policy makers about Alaskan food needs.
While our members fight hunger on the front lines, the AFC works hard to support them. Some of our goals include:
* Develop innovative and effective private sector solutions to
meet Alaska's hunger needs
* Build capacity to combat food insecurity in Alaskan
communities – through our mini-grant program, research, and
the sharing of best practices
* Discover and eliminate barriers to feeding hungry Alaskans –
through research, outreach and open dialog between members
* Educate policy makers and the public about food security and
food access issues in Alaska
