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.

Vital Farms Makes Eggnormous Donation
Governor Extends Safer at Home Mask Order
MONTGOMERY – Governor Kay Ivey recently issued her seventeenth supplemental emergency proclamation containing an amended Safer at Home Order that includes a statewide mask requirement.
Individuals will be required to wear a mask or other facial covering when in public and in close contact with other people, as described in the order. This amended order extends until Friday, October 2, 2020 at 5:00 pm.
Twenty-four pallets, 35,280 pounds or 1440 cases – anyway you count them - Vital Farms delivered a “Jumbo Sized” donation of pasture fresh eggs to Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB) recently.
The good people at Vital Farms are not only focused upon bringing ethically produced products to your table, (each egg comes from “happy hens” who enjoy a minimum of 108 sq. ft. roaming room in fresh pastures) but, particularly during Hunger Action Month, are providing assistance to food insecure families in an effort to increase the amount of “happy humans” as well!
Montgomery Area Food Bank will distribute these eggs to our neighbors in need throughout Central Alabama via a network of Partner Distribution Organizations in Tuscaloosa, Auburn, Selma and Dothan, which create an extended reach to more than 800 partner agencies throughout MAFB’s service area of more than half of Alabama’s counties.
Due to their endless versatility, eggs are a highly desirable item especially for families on a limited budget. This sizable Vital Farms donation is one which will go a long way toward ending hunger one helping at a time.
