The majority of the food distributed by FMSFP is purchased in bulk from Feeding America. Feeding America operates as a central clearing-house for collecting and distributing food and grocery products that might otherwise be wasted. The food bank solicits and receives both new and manufactured excess food that is otherwise fully edible food from the food industry such as manufacturers, distributors, warehouse and storage operations, grocery chains, or from individual donors. It also benefits from being a member of the Feeding America network of food banks, which solicits food and grocery products in large quantities from national manufacturers and distributes these goods among nearly 200 regional food banks in the United States.
FMSFP also receives non-perishable commercially prepared canned goods and other foods via local congregation food drives.
Local growers are encouraged to "plant an extra row" during the growing season to provide fresh vegetables to the patrons of FMSFP.
