Community Food Bank Asst Healthy Food Access Coordinator
 
 
 
The Community Food Bank of Central Alabama’s mission is to feed people in need today and foster collaborative solutions to end hunger tomorrow. We accomplish this mission by supplying millions of meals per year to 230 food pantries, shelters and children’s programs in 12 counties of Central Alabama. We also create healthy food access for especially vulnerable populations. For example, we feed children at risk of hunger during school breaks through weekend meal kits and free summer meals. We deliver fresh produce and other staples to residents living in isolated communities and provide food to patients at on-site medical clinic food pantries. We also save millions of pounds of wholesome foods from going to waste each year in local landfills, and in times of disaster, the Community Food Bank is a first responder, providing emergency food and water to residents impacted by tornadoes or floods.
