Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank celebrates 50 years of service to the community starting July 1, 2021. To kick off a year-long celebration, the Food Bank has partnered with the Smoky Hill Museum to showcase its history and accomplishments over the years. Executive Director Karen Couch stated, “We are so delighted to have this opportunity to share the story of our agency and give the community the chance to celebrate this milestone with us. It’s an exciting time at the Food Bank. We are grateful to the Museum staff and our friends at Fili Creative for collaborating with us to bring this display to fruition.”

Since 1971, the Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank has strived to meet the needs of those in Saline County with dignity and respect, primarily offering food and financial assistance. The display reflects the Food Bank’s anniversary theme: Filling Pantries….Filling Lives, and will be open to visitors now through the end of July.
