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.

Event: Tools for Back to School
Date: July 19 - August 4
Location: Publix Super Markets
Description: Every year, Publix Super Markets’ Tools for Back to School gives more students a chance to excel in their studies. Too often, parents don't have the money to prepare their children with basic learning materials like pens, markers, crayons, or notebooks. Many times, teachers use their own money to provide these resources. Your contributions to Tools for Back to School go to local charities and participating schools.
Together, we're strengthening our educational system by providing these essential tools for learning, such as: crayons, pencils, notebooks, washable markers, colored pencils, filler paper, pens, folders, scissors, and glue.
Donate $5 or more to Tools for Back to School between July 19 and August 4, and you'll receive a free reusable bag.
Simply bring a bag and donation form to checkout.
