We Still Can Make a Difference

Our annual food drive is September 1-30 of each year. Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we are NOT accepting donations this time. We hope to be back soon; but in the meantime, there’s still a way that you can help Hoover and our neighboring communities!

Donate to one of the following nearby locations that accept food and monetary donations.

Green Valley Baptist Church serves over a hundred families each month through various ministries, and the food bank serves thousands of people each year. The food pantry is open on the third Tuesday of each month from 8-11 am.

Community Foodbank

 

 

 

The Community Foodbank of Central Alabama supplies millions of meals per year to over 230 food pantries, shelters and children’s programs in 12 counties in Central Alabama.

Farmers to Families Program

Community Food Bank of Central Alabama is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and local for-profit food distributors to implement the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) or the Farmers to Families Food Box Program. Farmers to Families delivers large amounts of fresh foods to partner sites to be quickly distributed to individuals in need. All foods are prepackaged by for-profit distributors into grocery boxes ranging in size from 15-25 lbs. These preassembled boxes are then delivered directly to partner sites who distribute them to participating families via a “drive-through” distribution system that day. By serving families in their vehicles, volunteers are able to maintain safe social distancing in accordance with CDC guidance.

Why is this important?
It's important because hunger in Alabama is a real issue. Many families simply need help putting food on the table. This campaign gives our patrons and the community an opportunity to support their local food banks, which helps feed those in need. It's a great way to make a difference in the community.

How can I make a difference?
The best way to make a difference is to give. Just one can of soup can make a world of difference to someone that is in need. It’s why our motto is “We Can Make a Difference!”

What can people do to help?

Bring donations or send monetary donations to the organizations listed above and share this opportunity to give with your family and friends. Ask them to send donations as well. It’s going to a great cause! For more information, call the Hoover Library at 205-444-7800.
