Because we receive strong support from donors in the community and the food industry, the Food Bank keeps administrative costs low. Ninety-five cents of every dollar donated to the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama goes to our mission, and we're able to provide the equivalent of eight meals* for a person in need.
