Food banks across the state of Alabama are collecting goods and seeking volunteers. According to the 2010 Government Census, 36% of Alabama’s residents live below the poverty line, which is over 1.6 million people. Many of these people receive food from food banks to make ends meet.
Hunger often goes unnoticed because it cannot be seen nor touched and many people who cannot feed themselves nor their families have nowhere else to turn for nutritious meals.
If you are interested in donating to a food bank this fall or to volunteer, then click here to find a food bank near you. As well, there are many other organizations that are involved in fighting against hunger. The West Alabama Food Bank website has a great list of organizations that help fight hunger.
Let’s work together to affect positive change in the lives of those around us. Donate today!
