Bread of the Mighty Food Bank is a private non-profit organization that was founded in 1987. We collect, sort, store and distribute donated food and basic essentials to more than 190 non-profit partner agencies such as food pantries, homeless shelters and other feeding organizations who directly feed the hungry. We serve 5 North Central Florida Counties- Alachua, Dixie, Gilchrist, Lafayette, and Levy. We are a Partner Distribution Organization under Feeding America. An increasing amount of our donated food is fresh and perishable and cannot sit in the distribution center for too long; therefore, we established the Food on the Move program to be sure the food reaches those in need quickly. Every $1.00 donated can provide up to 10 meals to those in need.

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Bread of the Mighty Food Bank primarily collects, warehouses and distributes food to front-line organizations like food pantries and soup kitchens. It also manages smaller programs that provide groceries directly to beneficiaries.
Impact Statement
$1 provides a meal to a person in need.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of food distribution programs are based on the cost of a meal relative to the cost that a food-secure person incurs to buy a meal in that county. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they are less than 75% the cost of a meal and a score of 75 if they are less than 125%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of Bread of the Mighty Food Bank.
Data Source
Outcome data collected during the program. Bread of the Mighty Food Bank publicly reports the amount of food it provides.
Method for Attributing Outcomes
We assume that the distribution of a meal from one nonprofit's food distribution program does not diminish the amount of food distributed by any other (neighboring) food distribution program. This “counterfactual” assumption about the amount of food distributed in the absence of Bread of the Mighty Food Bank’s food distribution program implies that the benefit of a meal to a beneficiary in need constitutes a net gain; the gain is not offset by reductions in food provided to other beneficiaries in need. We therefore set the counterfactual to zero.
