Mission Statement

The mission of the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama is to serve people in need by securing and storing surplus food and household items and distributing it through local partnering service agencies.

Description

The Community Food Bank of Central Alabama is looking for volunteers to help package food for distribution through its Weekenders Backpack Program. Currently serving five schools, the mission of the Weekenders Program is to alleviate child hunger in Central Alabama by providing nutritious, easy-to-prepare food at times when other resources are not available, such as weekends and school vacations. Packs of food are distributed to participating schools and then are discretely given to more than 1000 children in need. Volunteers are needed at the food bank every Thursday 9 am- 2 pm to help fill the packs for distribution. Please contact Ashley Carter at 942-8911, extension 109 or at acarter@feedingal.org to set up a time or for more information about the program.
