The Wiregrass Area Food Bank is a non-profit hunger relief charity that solicits and collects donated food. The Food Bank distributes this food to organizations feeding the needy in a six-county service area that includes Houston, Henry, Dale, Geneva, Coffee, and Barbour counties in Alabama. The Food Bank is an independent non-profit with paid staff, volunteers, and a board of directors. Operating from a warehouse with frozen and refrigerated storage, and networked with other food banks from across the country, the Food Bank can access food and other assorted grocery products and operate at minimal cost. As a result, member non-profit agencies that utilize the Food Bank are able to conduct their food programs in a cost-effective manner. No donated food is ever sold by the Food Bank or by any member agency. Food recipients incur no cost for food assistance. A shared maintenance fee assessed to affiliate agencies helps to support the Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank. Additional financial support is generously donated from churches, civic clubs, businesses, and concerned citizens. The Wiregrass Area Food Bank is an equal opportunity provider.
