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.
Please fill-in the necessary information and click submit. We even have a list of suggested items to donate. Teressa Vigneault Millwood is our Food & Fund Drive Coordinator. You can call her at 334-263-3784 if you have questions.

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.
