The Peoria Area Food Bank was formed in 1984 to help supplement the dietary and nutritional needs of low-income families. Counties served by the Peoria Area Food Bank are Peoria, Tazewell, Woodford, Fulton, Mason, McLean, DeWitt and Livingston counties.

The Peoria Area Food Bank is a member of Feeding America (formerly America's Second Harvest), the nation's largest hunger-relief organization, and is active with Feeding Illinois (formerly the Illinois Food Bank Association), whose mission is to educate the public about the purpose of Feeding America food banks serving Illinois counties, and the role the food banks play in addressing hunger.

The Food Bank provides 116 active food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior housing, and low-income day-care centers with large quantities of food from name brand manufacturers and USDA commodities on a daily basis. The food bank also operates a Mobile Food Pantry, a SNAP Outreach Program and works with several Back Pack programs throughout the service area.

In 2011 the food bank distributed very nearly 3,000,000 pounds of food. The Food Bank relies heavily on corporate manufacturers for food donations. It also receives support from individuals and local businesses, and actively participates in the annual Peoria Area Anti-Hunger Coalition Can-a-thon and the National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive.
