Food Bank Of North Alabama

Who We Are

In 1984 a small group of committed volunteers started the Food Bank of North Alabama by borrowing a desk from the Huntsville Madison County Senior Center and making calls to local farmers. In our early years, we focused exclusively on feeding neighbors in need but the number of residents who could not afford to buy enough food to eat only increased. So, we broadened our aim and now take a two-pronged approach to solving hunger.

We feed the hungry today AND create solutions that will end hunger tomorrow.

We accomplish this mission by supplying 8.5 million pounds of food a year to a network of over 240 food pantries, shelters and children’s programs in 11 counties of North Alabama. Together we feed over 80,000 people at risk of hunger annually.

We also address hunger’s root causes through broad-scale collaborations and local food initiatives that foster entrepreneurship and healthy food access across our region.

What We Do

Our Mission We feed the hungry today and create solutions to end hunger tomorrow. We accomplish our mission by  supplying food to the ill, needy, and children through a network of partner feeding programs; and pursuing proactive solutions that end hunger through local food entrepreneurship.
