When the residents of Fountain Heights, Pratt City, Quinton or a 200-person senior community in Tarrant can’t access a grocery store, the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama brings the grocery store to them.
The Community Food Bank serves about 11 million meals per year through food pantries, shelters and children’s programs in 12 counties, Executive Director Kathryn Strickland said. One of their newest programs is the Corner Market, a mobile grocery store that Strickland said can bring access to fresh produce for food-insecure and low-income communities.
“To have the store come to them is very convenient and much needed,” Strickland said. . . .
