Denali Food Bank

Drop off Location: Behind the FEDEX Customer Service Desk at Three Bears in Healy

The CARES grant from the Borough and the State and a Covid Relief Funds from the United Way of Tanana Valley have allowed Neighbor to Neighbor to purchase a Portable Garage from Alaska Better Built Company for long term cold/dry storage which was delivered mid January, and we were able to purchase a commercial Freezer and Refrigerator in order to follow the guidelines to establish a permanent Food Bank in the Borough. Long time Neighbor to Neighbor sponsors Mark Menke and Todd Shorey of DArlin Enterprises have worked with us to move and setup the former Pharmacy building in Healy just off the Parks Highway to have a heated building to house our operation.

Throughout 2020 and 2021 Neighbor to Neighbor partnered with the Fairbanks Community Food Bank to deliver TEFAP (The Emergency Food Assistance Program) food boxes to Denali Borough residents once a month, we have had an equal response from the Cantwell, Healy, and Anderson areas. We will be transitioning to our own local Food Box Program modeled off of the TEFAP program.
