Latest Information


Fight Hunger. Spark Change...has kicked off! Wal-mart is working with us to fight hunger in Alabama.

 

 Have you seen this logo in Wal-Mart and wondered what it meant?  Fight Hunger. Spark Change is a Wal-Mart campaign designed to help "fight hunger and spark change" in our communities by donating funds to Feeding America, which in turn distributes the money to all of the member food banks in the country.  Wal-Mart plans to donate up to $3 million dollars and also hopes to secure 75 million meals. All of which would help our agencies better serve their clients. 

How can you help?

1. Purchase participating products.  For each participating product purchased at Walmart between April 6 and May 3, 2015 a donation will be made to secure one meal for Feeding America food banks! Products are from favorite brands like Campbell’s, ConAgra Foods, General Mills, Kellogg Company, Kraft and Unilever. For more information and alist of participating products, please visit walmart.com/fighthunger.  

2. Make a donation at checkout. From April 6 to May 3, you can give monetary donations of $1, $2, or $5 to Community Food Bank of Central Alabama at the register of any participating Walmart.

3. Post a photo! Share a photo of six people who commit to solving hunger on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag ‪#‎WeSparkChange‬. Walmart will donate $10 for every qualifying post, up to $1.5 million!

 Walmart aims to donate up to $3 million to Feeding America and local food banks like Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.

 


 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is May 9th!  

It's almost that time of the year again! Mark your calendars for the National Association of Letter Carriers' Food Drive on Saturday, May 9th. Stamp Out Hunger is the LARGEST one-day food drive in the country and we will need YOUR help!  See the section below for information on how to volunteer! 

{from the USPS web site}
Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers, who participate in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation. 
Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), with help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 20 years. Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. Nearly 1,500 NALC branches in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands are involved. 

What can you do to help? 

  • Volunteer  (See below)
  • Ask friends & family to donate non-perishable food items.

Go to the USPS Facebook page here or the USPS official website here for more information!
