THE SIMPLE GESTURE OF A MEAL…

 

Food is a basic need that is not met in our community. Each year, over 160,000 people in our community go hungry. And while the need is great, we are not deterred. Our food donations give love and hope for those trying to provide for themselves and their family. We can’t do this alone. Your support sustains our organization and allows us to serve a need by serving a meal.

The Reality:

  • Jefferson County: 125,247 people are hungry (19%) and 27,554 are children (22.2%) .

  • Shelby County: 20,506 (9.6%) people are hungry  and 3,445 (18.6%) are children.

  • Talladega County: 14,812 (18.5%) people are hungry and 3,762 (25.4%) are children.
