Our Volunteers are absolutely vital to the MAFB- without YOU, we would not be able to reach out to so many families. Our new Volunteer Center features 2,000 square feet of essential space to host even more volunteer groups and individuals, like you, who want to make a difference in their community! We can also accommodate workplace events and other groups. It's a great way to build your team while working on a community- focused project. To volunteer, please fill out our Volunteer Application, and e-mail it to Teressa Vigneault Millwood or call her at 334-263-3784. Want to stay up to date on the latest volunteer information?

Got a green thumb? Most of us home gardeners have plenty of extra produce on hand- we give it to our neighbors and friends to show how much we care. We encourage you to donate a portion of your fresh fruits and vegetables to the Food Bank to help us provide fresh, healthy produce to families in need. Consider planting an extra row specifically for donations, this will make a tremendous impact on the long-term nutritional well-being of those we serve.
Individuals, gardening clubs, local farms and farmer’s markets, businesses such as garden supply stores and landscapers, and others may join. For more information, please contact Jolene Kearns at 263-3784 or Jolenekearns@montgomeryareafoodbank.org.
Become a Donor
MAFB relies on the support of individuals and businesses in our local communities to fulfill our mission. Without your help, we could not reach out to so many or provide quality, nutritious items such as fresh produce. We've come up with a list of great, always useful items to donate, but nothing goes to waste.
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, a way to let us know how many MAFB boxes and/or barrels you want to use. This same form provides an opportunity to tell us if like for Montgomery Area Food Bank to promote or acknowledge your Fund and Food Drive on our social media.
Once you've filled out the form - simply click the Big Red “SUBMIT” Button. The info you provide will be sent to our Fund and Food Coordinator and Communications Team. Unfortunately, not all requests for promotion or acknowledgement can be chosen. However, our team will do all they can to promote as many as possible.
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. We even have a list of suggested items to donate during the holidays. Teressa Vigneault Millwood is our Food & Fund Drive Coordinator. You can call her at 334-263-3784 if you have questions.
