The Selma Area Food Bank has been in operation since October 18,1993. Through the years we have been able to distribute food to many people that otherwise would have gone hungry. It is our goal to stop hunger, right here at home. Our service area includes 4 counties: Dallas, Wilcox, Marengo and Perry. We have almost 50 active agencies that receive food from us and distribute to their community. The Selma Area Food Bank is a warehouse for bulk food items. The food comes from donations from local businesses. Wal-Mart and Winn Dixie have been donating food for years and have been able to do more each year. The Montgomery Area Food Bank is where we receive USDA and other donated food. It has been our community that has kept us going for so many years. We never take any donation for granted and appreciate all efforts to help the food bank grow. If you are looking for a worthwhile charity you have found a good one. We are all for sending help to the other needy areas of the world but there are things to be done here at home. Every $1 will provide 14 pounds of food. 14 pounds of food could be used to prepare several meals.Feeding America has made a huge effort to increase awareness of hunger in the United States and it has helped.
