On April 20th, Montgomery Area Food Bank reduced the Shared Handling fees to provide some short-term relief to our agencies that are responding to our communities’ needs in these challenging times. This reduction resulted in a savings of 10’s of thousands of dollars to our agencies.
As you know, our standard Shared Handling Fee is $0.18 per pound. As we move toward the future it will be necessary to gradually return to that level. That being said, below you will find our new fee structure effective September 1, 2020. You will notice that while there is an increase, the fees are still lower than they were in CY 2019 and the first few months of 2020. We will continue at this rate for at least the remainder of 2020. We do this to show our continued appreciation for those who have “stood in the gap” with us as we fought not only hunger, but COVID19 as well. You are to be commended for your dedication and devotion to battling hunger across Alabama!
