Alabama food banks.

Alabama individuals and families can turn to food banks and pantries for help. These non-profit centers and organizations can usually provide free food, groceries, and other forms on non-financial support (such as clothes and counseling) to families and individuals who are facing a hardship and who need help.

A listing of the largest agencies, their phone numbers, and addresses are listed below. Many of the food banks and agencies on this page can also refer people to other resources and assistance programs that are located directly in their town or county, and locations that are nearer to where they live. Do not hesitate to call to ask for help. They may also have information on state of Alabama and federal government programs such as the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).
