Interested in becoming an Agency Partner?
The Heart of Alabama Food Bank works with over 260 food pantries, soup kitchens, residential facilities, and children’s programs across 12 counties in the river region of Alabama. We supply them with a variety of foods including meats, canned goods, fruits, vegetables, bread, and rice. There is no charge for the food, though we do request what is called a “cost-sharing” fee to assist with freight, storage, and sourcing expenses. The fee varies depending upon the item but is no more than sixteen cents per pound. Regularly, we provide fresh produce, eggs, nuts, or other items free for our agencies at pickup, no fee at all.
