Wasilla Sunrise and Food Pantry of Alaska
November 2010

The difference between the Food Bank of Alaska and the Food Pantry of Wasilla:

The Food Bank collects and provides food to the agencies that distribute food.

Money or food that goes to Food Bank, may be used anywhere in the state.

Money or food that goes to the Food Pantry, is used here in the valley.

The Food Pantry does not just serve Wasilla.Their mandate says they serve any resident of the Mat-Su valley. They will serve ANYONE who comes to their door, but concentrate on Valley residents.
