No one in Alabama should go hungry. And we believe there is a solution to the problem of hunger in Alabama. For every person who is currently in need, there are even more people in Alabama willing and able to reach out with a helping hand.

What Hunger Looks Like in Central Alabama

In 2019, Community Food Bank completed its most comprehensive study of hunger in Central Alabama. We found that the people we serve are facing tough choices between buying food and paying for basic needs. These parents, students, seniors, and working families are struggling with hunger and depend on food assistance to make ends meet.
