Hosting a Fund and Food Drive has become a great way for our community to impact our mission to feed individuals and families in need across Alabama! Every grocery item donated helps. Every dollar donated provides an additional 6 ½ pounds of assistance directly to those who are struggling to put food on the table.
Communities, businesses, clubs, schools and individuals continually display their pride in ownership, and empathy for the MAFB mission by hosting countless Fund and Food Drives on our behalf…many of which we are unaware of until the proceeds are delivered.
There are more than a few Food & Fund Drives which have become annual events. Considering how many and how widely these events differ, Independent Food & Fund Raisers are viewed by our communities as a fun, social way to volunteer individual time and talents to a truly worthy mission. That said, the food drives that take our hearts are the children who have birthday parties and ask party goers to bring nonperishable food instead of presents…and then donate them in support of our mission.
We’ve put together a Fund & Food Drive Information Sheet, which provides some guidance and even a way to let us know how many MAFB boxes and/or barrels you want to use. When we are presented with folks who are feel they might not be quite ready to host their own drive, but want to anyway, we can frequently provide opportunities to support a current drive, which is being promoted here.
Promotion: If your organization would like for Montgomery Area Food Bank to promote or acknowledge your fund raising and/or food drive event on our social media, (like below) please fill out the same Fund & Food Drive Information Sheet and click the Big Red “SUBMIT” Button. The info you provide will be sent to our Communications Team for consideration.

Locations: Davis Theater - 251 Montgomery St, Montgomery, AL 36104
Description: Just as the Glenn Miller Orchestra reached the height of its popularity in 1942, Miller decided to quit his life as a civilian and volunteer his musical talents to the war effort by joining the Army Air Forces (AAF). Because of his age, 38, and his glasses, he knew that he would not be drafted, and therefore obtained a commission in the AAF on November 23, 1942.
He was sent to Maxwell Field Air Force Base here in Montgomery, where he played trombone in their dance band “The Rhythmaires,” until he was able to suggest the establishment of official AAF bands to Major General Walter R. Weaver. Major Glenn Miller lead the AAF Orchestra on a world-wide tour raising moral at every stop.
The Glenn Miller concert is a 35-year tradition for the River Region, minus one year during sequestration, which prevented the band from traveling. Tickets are available for the 35th Annual Glenn Miller Christmas concert at Troy University's Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts. Doors will open for the show at 6:30 p.m. The band will strike up at 7 p.m.
