Information About Bellevue Community Food Bank

The Food Bank was started in 1991 as a ministry through Bellevue United Methodist Church.  Some food giving may have occurred before this date, but not as an organized effort.

Only a few of our recipients are homeless, less than 10% in fact.  Most of our families (greater than 60%) have at least one person working, or are on medical disability (20%) but are simply unable to make ends meet. Many have accepted children from other family members into their home, i.e. grandmothers caring for grandchildren.   

The Food Bank is truly a community food bank, built on donations from local persons, communities of faith and businesses in our community.

We accept customers from 5 local zip codes:  37221-Bellevue, 37205-Belle Meade, 37209-West Nashville, 37143-Pegram and 37062-Fairview. Our coverage area is determined by availability of other charitable food sources, and by need of the community.

4)  We accept almost any food item.  We also accept diapers, personal items like deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, etc
