Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB) delivered more than 27 TONS of assistance early in the morning recebntly, which will provide assistance to more than 450 families through a Mobile Pantry distribution conducted by Family Guidance Center of Alabama (FGCA).
This Mega Mobile Pantry/ Exercise, Nutrition and Diet (MP/END) Program delivery represents MAFB’s most efficient means of fighting hunger - in one place, at one time, and is part of a $15,000 grant award from Montgomery’s Working Woman’s Home Association (WWHA).
“The Family Guidance Center is one of our agencies, which has an existing Food Pantry on its premises,” said Jolene Kearns, who serves as MAFB’s Programs Development Manager. “However, they also organize an annual Mobile Pantry n Montgomery, which has grown over the years.
“This year they have more than 450 pre-qualified families, so we knew we’d have to multiply our regular single MP distribution, which provides between 5 and 7 Tons of assistance,” added Kearns. “While this isn’t the first time we’ve delivered a ‘Triple MP’, this is one of the largest single event deliveries we’ve made. It’s exciting! We’re going to be helping approximately 1,200 People In Poverty (2.7 people per household/family average) with an estimated 500 of them (40%) being children ” (Full story, images and media coverage - click here)
