Thank you for your interest in conducting a Food/Fund Drive (FFD) in support of the Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB). We are grateful for your enthusiastic support. We have come to recognize and appreciate the undeniable "Pride in Ownership" of our mission by so many members of our community. It's this commitment which not only continues to make us a strong community, but has been exemplified since 1986, by your willingness to donate your time and effort, as well as nourishment and assistance to our mission to 'Feed Hope Across Alabama."
Over the years we have found Food & Fund Drives have two distinct areas of responsibilIty, which ensure our successful support of your efforts. While these areas naturally enhance one another, they are managed independently. The logistical coordination of picking up supplies like boxes and donation barrels, as well as the ultimate drop off of donated assistance, is accomplished by a completely separate function of the food bank than the promotion necessary to encourage public participation.
All Promotional Support: If your organization would like us provide promotional support please fill out the same form completely and click the Big Red “SUBMIT” Button. Promotional information will be sent to our Media Relations Team Leader - Al Bloom . Please keep in mind, the best way to get your event promoted is by providing images, photos and/or logos - well ahead of time.

You may use containers of your choice, or barrels and/or boxes may be obtained at MAFB. We suggest you take one or two barrels for use in collecting the food and additional boxes for use in storing and transporting.
PLEASE do not apply or attach anything to MAFB barrels. The graphics are easily ruined.
Unfortunately, with the number of drives and our small staff, we cannot support donation drop-offs/pick-ups. So, as you are conducting your charitable mission, MAFB appreciates your understanding about our expensive transportation costs as you pick up your requested containers/boxes and return your collected drive to us.
Especially during the Holiday Season, we simply do not have the resources or manpower to pick up & deliver for individual fund/food drives. We can only make exceptions for very large drives where the amount of food collected necessitates transport by one of our commercial vehicles and truck coordination has been pre-arranged.
MAFB offices are open Monday through Friday, 7:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. for pick-up and drop-off.
Please indicate the number of boxes or barrels needed. Barrels fill up quickly, and our boxes are stackable and far easier to handle when full for transport.
