Other Ways to Give

Direct donations are not the only way to support the Community Food Bank of central Alabama. 

Check out these other ways to give back to the Food Bank! 

Food Drives are important to keeping our shelves stocked with nutritious food for the children, seniors, veterans, and families we serve. Every donation makes a difference—no matter the size! We can provide the bins, and you provide the manpower!

Fund Drives, or Virtual Food Drives, are especially helpful because a $1 donation provides 4 meals. When you hold a Virtual Food Drive, your dollar is stretched further. We can purchase food at a much lower cost than at a grocery store, and we will be able to purchase exactly what we are in need of.

A Donor-Advised Fund is like a charitable investment account, for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about. When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.
