Type of Event: 7th AnnualNationwide Food Drive-"Feds Feed Families"
Location: Federal employee locations
"Feds Feed Families" (FFF) is a voluntary effort supported by Federal employees across the country, launched in 2009 as part of President Obama's United We Serve campaign. FFF is designed to help food banks and pantries stay stocked during summer months when they traditionally see a decrease in donations and an increase in need.
All Federal agencies share their collections with local food banks (* Yes; Montgomery Area Food Bank) with the goal of ensuring that the FFF campaign will stretch across America and be visible and active in every state.
As in every year, federal employees are asked to bring non-perishable food items and place them into a designated collection boxed located in their Federal workplace.

Date: July 23rd-August 12th

Having the right school supplies can mean the difference between a passing or a failing grade. Unfortunately, many families do not have the resources to purchase school supplies and teachers often spend their own money to buy supplies for their students.
Please join Publix Super Markets to help students and teachers by participating in the Publix Tools for Back to School Program. "Tools for Back to School" displays will be located near the registers with tear off tickets valued at $5, $7, and $10. Tear the ticket and give it to the cashier during check out. The amount will be added to the grocery order.
School supplies, including notebooks, crayons, color pencils, markers, notebook paper, folders, scissors and glue, will be shipped in bulk to non-profit organizations (Yes; Montgomery Area Food Bank) and schools.
The "Tools for Back to School" campaign runs July 24 through August 13 at over 1,000 Publix Super Markets.
Type of Event: Hunger Action Month
Location: River Region
Nowadays there seems to be a month or day devoted to one cause or another. And, while combating hunger in Alabama is an effort which receives your full support throughout the entire year – we will be joining food banks throughout the nation to designate September as Hunger Action Month.
At a minimum; success will be measured by an increased awareness of the battle being waged to combat hunger in Alabama. At best; we will provide opportunities for the origins of efforts which could realize a lasting impact on our mission – combating hunger in Alabama.
We readily recognize and whole-heartedly appreciate the awe inspiring support we receive throughout the year. However, by highlighting an entire month, we hope to provide other groups and individuals an opportunity to follow your lead and answer our collective call to take action to combat hunger.
