Get Involved

Volunteer With Us!

As a volunteer, you help bring our mission to life.

We have volunteer opportunities both in our warehouse, as well as in the community at Mobile Pantries. We love individual volunteers, community groups, and corporate groups alike.

For your safety, CLOSED-TOE SHOES ARE MANDATORY. We request that you bring & wear a mask, as masks are required at all times when in our building. If you don’t have a mask, we will provide you with one! Feeling sick? If you are feeling sick, please reschedule or cancel your volunteer assignment. Handling food products while sick, compromises the safety of those we serve and our employees who are crucial to continuing our operations.

We also welcome volunteers who have court-mandated community service. Email volunteer@feedingal.org or call 205-942-8911 to see if you are eligible.

Other Ways to Donate

Memorial Donations / Dedicated Donations

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

Every dollar given to the Food Bank helps to provide six meals for a neighbor at risk of hunger. A gift as a tribute is a perfect way to honor someone’s birthday, wedding, anniversary, in place of holiday gifts, or in honor of a friend or loved one who has passed on.

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

 

Tomorrow's Harvest 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 Nicole at nwilliams@feedingal.org.

Host a Food Drive

Food Drives are critically 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!

Many groups design their Food Drives around friendly competition. Popular themes include Alabama vs. Auburn, inter-department competitions, or a Super Hero contest. We can provide the bins, and you provide the manpower! If you need ideas or tips, the Registration Toolkit has lots of good information!

To host a food or fund drive, simply fill out the Registration Toolkit linked below and email it to volunteer@feedingal.org. We’ll contact you back with your next steps!

Virtual Food Drive

We know that these are unprecedented times, so we want to make it easy for you to get involved! If you would like to host a Virtual Food Drive, we can create a custom donation page for you, and you can raise funds rather than physical food!

This type of Food Drive is 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.

To get started on a Virtual Food Drive, email Daniel at volunteer@feedingal.org and we will set it up!
