If you're looking for something productive to do this weekend, why not head down to the Montgomery Area Food Bank. They need your help, and it's for a good cause: be a part of feeding thousands of people in Central Alabama.
The Montgomery Area Food Bank is one of Montgomery’s premiere institutions. The organization serves thousands of people across Central Alabama, and works to improve the lives of everyone within. They run food drives, offer volunteer opportunities, and work with communities in and around Montgomery to give support to those in need. This nonprofit works with more than 800 partner agencies and operates – through those partners – in 35 different counties throughout the state – no small feat. For reference, that’s almost 25,000 square miles in total. It’s amazing, and they get the job done every time.
But how do they do it, and further, what can you do to help?
We went to the Montgomery Area Food Bank last week to find out. CEO Richard Deem spoke to us about the food bank’s history, challenges they have faced in the past, and what sort of things they have planned for the future. They’ve got lots of cool events set up for the summer months, so if you’re interested in being a part of the charity, you should definitely get in touch; you can contact them by calling 334-263-3784.
If you’d like to learn more about the Montgomery Area Food Bank, you can check out their website here. You’ll also find a list of upcoming drives and charity events that are being run by the bank and its partners. If you are an organization and want to assist the food bank in their mission, this is the best place to start. And with the summer months fully in gear, there’s never been a better time to get involved.
Central Alabama Weekend wants to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Montgomery Area Food Bank for all the stellar work they do. Our state is far better for its efforts, and we’re looking forward to seeing what comes next.
