Since 1986, Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB) has nourished the hungry by educating & mobilizing the community, engaged in partnerships to advance self-sufficiency, and gathered/distributed assistance throughout 35 Alabama counties. We work with municipal, state and national organizations like, Feeding America, Alabama's Department of Public Health, USDA and FEMA.

MAFB is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) fighting hunger & food insecurity by operating outreach programs targeting demographics most susceptible to food insecurity and unhealthy outcomes, while reaching out to more than 385,000 children, seniors, newly unemployed, working poor, homeless and disaster victims.

Through our Partner Distribution Organizations (strategically located smaller food banks) we realize an extended reach to more than 800 community agencies ranging from food pantries & kitchens to those dealing strictly with child & senior hunger. Last Fiscal Year we distributed more than 25 million pounds of vital assistance.
