A food bank is a place where food, typically non-perishable goods, are offered to the poor for free or at very low prices. Food banks often get the food from companies or supermarkets with unsaleable stock, and also from donations from the general public, especially around holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. It differs from a soup kitchen in that the food is not prepared.
