Disaster preparedness is part of Montgomery Area Food Bank’s operational plan, and while measures are being taken to ensure the continuity of our operations, please continue to “watch this space” and monitor our social media for what will likely be fluid changes and adjustments.
The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) has set up a hotline;1-888-264-2256 for the latest information regarding testing.
While developing the Hinman Building capital campaign, particular focus was placed upon delivering added value to donors. Community support of the MAFB mission through personalizing a Building Brick provides a unique means of ultimately receiving tangible recognition of that support, which will last. The community will quite literally be added to MAFB’s future and a donor’s generosity will be recognized as patrons, employees, volunteers and supporters enter our new E. Parke Hinman, III Building.
Capital Campaign Provides Visible, Lasting Recognition
All information in support of personalizing a Building Brick is available here - or by clicking on the brick logo on virtually every page of the MAFB web site. Corporate logos require an additional step of verifying trademark rights, but the entire process is direct and supported by customer service professionals to answer any of your questions.

USDA Announces Free Meals to Children Through School Year
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue recently announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is extending flexibilities to allow free meals to continue to be available to all children throughout the entire 2020-2021 school year.
“As our nation recovers and reopens, we want to ensure that children continue to receive the nutritious breakfasts and lunches they count on during the school year wherever they are, and however they are learning,” said Secretary Perdue.
USDA previously extended child nutrition waivers through December 2020 based upon available funding at the time. The flexibilities extended today will allow schools and other local program operators to continue to leverage the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) to provide no cost meals to all children, available at over 90,000 sites across the country, through June 30, 2021.
USDA is extending waivers through June 30, 2021, that:
•Allow SFSP and SSO meals to be served in all areas and at no cost;
•Permit meals to be served outside of the typically required group settings and meal times;
•Waive meal pattern requirements, as necessary.
•Allow parents and guardians to pick-up meals for their children.
These program flexibilities allow schools and local program operators to operate a meal service model that best meets their community’s unique needs, while keeping kids and staff safe. Additional flexibilities are being granted on a state-by-state basis, as required by law, to facilitate a wide range of meal service options and accommodate other operational needs.
