MAFB – Montgomery Area Food Bank
The Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB) is a non-profit organization founded in 1986 with the mission of locating, procuring, and distributing nutritious food to individuals in need in the 12 counties of Alabama’s River Region. They have collaborated with over 200 agencies and 575 partner organizations throughout the state to provide nutritious meals to the most vulnerable populations. The counties Elmore, Bullock, Autauga, Chilton, Butler, Lowndes, Coosa, Crenshaw, Macon, Montgomery, Pike, and Tallapoosa have access to their services. They distributed 26 million pounds of food to those in need in the past year.
Additionally, the MAFB collaborates with other organizations to combat starvation in the state. They collaborate with the Alabama Food Bank Association and the Feeding America network to assist families experiencing food insecurity. They run programs such as Kids Cafe, Backpack Program, and Senior Feeding that seek to provide nutritious meals to food-insecure children, seniors, and families.
The MAFB relies significantly on individual and corporate contributions to fund its programs. The MAFB can provide five meals to a person in need for only $1. They encourage individuals to organize food drives and donate their time to aid in their mission to serve the needy.
The MAFB has been instrumental in serving 35 Alabama counties and reducing starvation in the state. Many families have been aided by their efforts in overcoming starvation, malnutrition, and food insecurity. The organization remains dedicated to its mission of ensuring that no one goes to bed famished, and they continue to work diligently toward this end.
