Fighting Hunger, Building Hope: A Capital Campaign for Food Bank of East Alabama

Relocation to the newly renovated facility was completed and we re-opened in the new Food Bank on January 27th


From humble beginnings in the old Auburn Post Office, the Food Bank has dreamed of more. More storage for fresh, healthy food. More room for volunteers. More efficient office and operations space. More members of our community rallying behind our mission. We’ve accomplished much of that, but this is just the beginning.
