One out of five of us deal with Food Insecurity, which means four out of five of us could help!
YOU CAN HELP
It takes a network of dedicated professionals and constantly resilient collaborative efforts at the local, state,regional and even national levels to have any hope of effectively combating an issue as pervasive as hunger.
Our network is comprised of professionals, volunteers and friends who share the common goal of providing safe, nutritious food assistance and resources to our neighbors in need. Together we are bigger, better and more capable of Feeding Hope Across Alabama.

We love it when a plan comes together! Today we conducted a Mobile Pantry in Luverne spearheaded by our agency Color Full Visions and supported by 22 volunteers from Pepsi Bottling Group (celebrating their 100th Anniversary this year) and the community.
Our Mobile Pantry deliveries are hyper-efficient means of strengthening communities, while combating hunger. Today 27,124 pounds of assistance were delivered directly to pre-qualified families in need at one time, in one location.
Two hundred eighty six (286) families arrived early this morning to line-up their vehicles in anticipation of the arrival of our refrigerated truck. Once all 13.56 tons of assistance were unloaded, the pallets were broken down and food positioned to allow volunteers to deliver assistance as drivers slowly drove through distribution lines.
Our process of verifying need, provides us insight into who was helped today:
Households – 286
People in Poverty – 631
Children (18 & under) – 159.
Providing the assistance or receiving it – we find the reaction is in many cases the same – joy.
