Food Bank of Alaska
Food Bank of Alaska believes no one deserves to be hungry. We are dedicated to eliminating hunger in Alaska by obtaining and providing food to partner agencies feeding hungry people and through anti-hunger leadership.

Bean's Cafe
"The underlying premise of Bean's Café is a deep belief in the inherent dignity of every person, a belief that people respond with kindness when treated kindly, with trust when trusted, and respectfully when respected. Our aim is not to set up a value system – determining what is right or wrong – or a way of life for persons, but to allow them to form their own. In this situation a person is not pressured into acting in a special way, and their eventual response is free, lasting, and more fully themselves". (Copied from the original proposal to organize Bean's Café – 1979).

Canstruction
Canstruction is the most unique food charity in the world! Canstruction, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that holds annual design and build competitions to construct fantastic, giant sized, structures made entirely out of canned food. In each city after the structures are built and the winners declared the creations go on view to the general public as giant art exhibits. At the close of the competitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to the local food banks for distribution to community emergency feeding programs.

Kid's Kitchen
Kids' Kitchen is a nonprofit dedicated to providing nutritional meals for children at no cost. With over a million meals served with love since 1996, Kids' Kitchen is starting to see the first children they served grow into young, dynamic adults. Love works for our community, our nation, and our world. Join Grandpa Elgin of Anchorage, Alaska, in supporting the youth through providing healthy meals for children, providing hot food for kids, and making life better by taking care of children who will one day care for us. It is not charity; it is investment.
