Other Ways to Give

Direct donations are not the only way to support the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.

Check out these other ways to give back to the Food Bank! 
Food & Fund Drives

Food Drives are important to keeping our shelves stocked with nutritious food for the children, seniors, veterans, and families we serve. Every donation makes a difference—no matter the size! We can provide the bins, and you provide the manpower!

Fund Drives, or Virtual Food Drives, are especially helpful because a $1 donation provides 4 meals. When you hold a Virtual Food Drive, your dollar is stretched further. We can purchase food at a much lower cost than at a grocery store, and we will be able to purchase exactly what we are in need of.

Memorial/Honor Donations

A dedication donation to the Community Food Bank is a gift that keeps on giving.

A donation in honor of a person is a perfect way to celebrate someone’s birthday, wedding, anniversary, or in place of holiday gifts. A memorial gift remembers a friend or loved one who has passed on.

You can honor or memorialize your loved ones through a donation online at give.feedingal.org.

Monthly Giving Program

Hungry families need food year-round. Join our Meal Makers Club monthly giving program, and help ensure that adults and children in our communities have enough healthy food every month of the year.

A donation of just $10 a month will enable us to provide 40 meals for someone in need.

To get started, learn more here.

Planned Giving 

A planned gift creates a legacy of hope to ensure Tomorrow’s Harvest.

Your lasting gift can be especially meaningful because it provides long-term support that strengthens our ability to feed hungry neighbors. You can designate a bequest to the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama in your will, name the Food Bank as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, or gift retirement assets.

To learn more about Tomorrow’s Harvest Planned Giving, email development@feedingal.org.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of stocks and securities are an easy and great way to make an impact for our neighbors at risk of hunger.

To ensure a smooth transfer of your stock, please contact your broker, and advise them of your intent to donate stock to the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.

Email development@feedingal.org for questions or more information!

Donor-Advised Funds

A Donor-Advised Fund is like a charitable investment account, for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about. When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.

Contact your financial advisor to get started, or use DAF Direct (below) to connect.
