We're delighted to share highlights from our December Plates & Pounds report! The holiday season brought numerous opportunities and achievements to the Community Food Bank, and we are excited to update you on our progress.

In December, 1,892 volunteers generously contributed 6,077 service hours to support the mission. Thanks to support from our community, we received an impressive 1,685,368 lbs. of food, and we successfully distributed 1,829,179 lbs. of food. This allowed us to provide 1,524,316 meals to our neighbors facing hunger.

Your unwavering support in December made a significant impact! Thanks to your assistance, we distributed 25,000 holiday boxes, including 900 at our holiday distribution event at Church of the Highlands Fultondale Campus. We invite you to explore our website and discover how to actively participate in 2024. Many neighbors make difficult choices daily, and we firmly believe no one should go hungry.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your involvement in our mission to feed central Alabama. Together, we can end hunger!

Just like that, volunteers packed the last of 25,000 Holiday boxes. This is a massive accomplishment for our staff and volunteers.

Each Holiday box is packed with shelf-stable, holiday-themed foods to make a holiday meal. Paired with a frozen chicken, the Holiday box will feed a family of four for 7-10 days.

Thanks to our partners for ensuring our neighbors have access to a holiday meal this season.

Welcome to the Food Bank!

The mission of the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama is to feed people in need today and foster collaborative solutions that will end hunger tomorrow.

The Community Food Bank of Central Alabama serves a 12-county area: Blount, Calhoun, Cherokee, Clay, Cleburne, Etowah, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, Talladega, Walker, and Winston. CFB is a proud partner of the United Way of Central Alabama and Feeding America.

We receive food through Feeding America (a national food bank network with more than 200 food bank members), from government agencies, national donors, local donors, and additional food is purchased with monies allocated in our budget. This food is distributed to non-profit agencies and religious organizations that directly serve the needy through their own programs. These programs include emergency food pantries, shelters for the homeless, soup kitchens, residential facilities, and shelters for abused women and children. Any charitable, non-profit agency meeting the criteria of the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 © (3) may apply to become an agency of the Food Bank. The agency must then agree to distribute the food directly to the public at no charge.

We also provide food directly through our Kids Meals Campaign (offering Weekenders Backpacks, Family Markets, and Summer Meals), our End Senior Hunger Initiative (offering mobile pantries, and a Benefits Enrollment Center), Mobile Fresh (mobile pantries and Corner Market Mobile Grocery Store), and Rx Health (Food Link clinic pantries and NICU pantries) among other programs
