The Community Food Bank provides food in 12 counties across Central Alabama:
Blount, Calhoun, Cherokee, Clay, Cleburne, Etowah, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, Talladega, Walker, and Winston.
We partner with over 250 Agencies across our 12 county service area, and we provide those Agencies with food that they distribute free of charge. Times and days are subject to change, so be sure to call before attending.
The Community Food Bank also hosts a number of free food distributions throughout the month. These are called Mobile Pantries, and they are currently all drive-thru food distributions.
Every agency is different, so call to verify times, dates, and availability even if it is listed.
Some agencies require an appointment, and food is subject to availability.
If you have an emergency need, please call 2-1-1 or the toll-free number at (888) 421-1266.
If you are hearing-impaired, call 7-1-1 and ask to be connected to 2-1-1 Connects Alabama.
If you are going to an agency, be sure to call beforehand to verify the time and availability.
