We exist simply because some people in our community struggle with meeting a basic human need—having enough to eat.

Founded in 1993, the Food Bank of East Alabama works to create a safety net of community partners, programs, and direct services to meet the needs of our neighbors who struggle with hunger across our seven-county service area. With a network of more than 200 community partner food assistance sites, we can get nutritious food directly into the hands of those in need through agencies embedded in their communities.

We believe that everyone in our community should have enough nutritious food to live a happy, healthy life. We strive to increase access to healthy food and to foster long-term stability for neighbors in need with the help of our donors, partners, and volunteers.
