The Story

Selma, AL

The Selma Area Food Bank opened their doors on October 18, 1993 with a single purpose: to bridge the gap between poverty and prosperity. The food bank continuously works to fight hunger in central Alabama which consists of Dallas, Perry, Marengo, and Wilcox counties.

One of the main ways the Selma Area Food Bank works to enhance their mission of fighting is hunger is by providing mobile pantries. “These pantries are done in order to provide food assistance to needy families in areas that currently do not have established food assistance agencies,” said Lynn Henderson, a staff member at the Selma Area Food Bank. Over the last year, the Selma Area Food Bank has delivered 29 mobile pantries. Each pantry costs the food bank an average of $800. Additional funding would allow the food bank to secure additional food product to keep in stock for its regular operation while still having product to utilize for the mobile pantries.

In partnership with WoodmenLife Alabama Chapter 3, the Selma Area Food Bank hopes to raise $1,000 through RedBasket.org to purchase 20,000 pounds of food for two mobile pantries. This campaign will benefit nearly 600 individuals in need in Wilcox and Marengo counties. “Most of the food distributed will go toward feeding the elderly and disabled in these two counties. The absolute goal of the Selma Area Food Pantry is to ensure that no man, woman, or child ever goes to bed hungry,” said Lynn. By making a donation, you can help the Selma Area Food Bank continue their goal of fighting hunger in their service area!

This fundraiser is part of the Fighting Hunger Challenge. During the third quarter of 2017, WoodmenLife and RedBasket.org are partnering to support our National Community Focus of Fighting Hunger. WoodmenLife chapters are encouraging community hunger relief organizations to fundraise through RedBasket.org and raise money to purchase supplies and provide meals for their communities.
