Each food bank in the coalition maintains independence in their day to day operations but are able to lift each other up by developing adoptable standards and sharing best practices. Coalitions are often the starting point for collaborative projects, as seen in SKCFC’s Elk Run Farm where the need for fresh and local produce in the coalition’s food banks drove the creation of an organic farm.
