We truly do live in the 'Heart of Alabama'.
The Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB) was awarded a $41,500 grant by the Morgan Stanley Foundation recently to increase the food bank’s ability to access, transport store and provide more nutritious fruits and vegetables to families in need.
MAFB is one of six food banks nationwide to receive funding from Morgan Stanley as part of a $250,000 gift to Feeding America® member food banks. “Our focus is on hunger,” said Richard A. Deem, Chief Executive Officer, “But, our partnership to increase fresh produce capacity is very exciting. We’re not only fighting hunger, but we’re also able to provide the building blocks of a healthier community.”
Morgan Stanley has supported 117 food banks in 41 states with grants for child nutrition programs, and more recently, produce programs. Committed to helping children get a healthy start in life and having access to food is essential to this mission. Morgan Stanley also provided MAFB $75,000 in grant awards targeting Child Hunger, as well as another grant to recognize their Montgomery employee volunteer efforts led by Lawrence Oakley, a member of MAFB’s Board of Directors.
“We are honored to join the Montgomery Area Food Bank in its important fight against hunger,” said Montgomery Morgan Stanley Branch Manager
Morgan Stanley 'Grants' Increased Produce Capacity
“Through this grant we can help provide even more people with the fresh produce they need to thrive. But our commitment extends beyond financial support. Our employees regularly volunteer at the food bank, individually supporting our culture of giving back.”
