MONTGOMERY, AL – Montgomery Area Food Bank receives a $1,500 contribution from Woodforest Charitable Foundation.

Montgomery Area Food Bank, established in 1986, fights hunger and poverty in 35 counties throughout South Central Alabama.  The Food Bank serves the needy through 700 member agencies by soliciting, procuring and distributing excess food, grocery and household products; by developing and monitoring agency networks; and by cultivating community awareness and participation.

Woodforest Charitable Foundation’s donation of $1,500 will support the Food Bank’s Senior Supplement Program.  The Senior Supplement Program is an enrollment program for persons aged 60 and above, who are not able to obtain sufficient food for a healthy diet with their own resources.  The clients receive boxes of non-perishable food during the third week of each month.  “We continue in gratefulness to the Woodforest Charitable Foundation for your support, but our thanks pale in comparison to that of those you are helping to feed,” said E. Parke Hinman, Executive Director of Montgomery Area Food Bank.  “The Foundation’s generosity will make a difference in the lives of so many.”
