BBFD is so excited to announce our Break the Bank Week! From October 31st to November 4th, we will be trying to raise a whopping 100,000 pounds for the Food Bank of East Alabama.
We have fun activities planned all week and prizes may or may not be involved ;) BBFD will be out on the concourse each day of the week, and each day is full of more surprises! Also, be sure to check out our calendar for yummy benefit nights!
JOIN US AND LET'S BEAT HUNGER AND BEAT BAMA!
Yes, YOU, get your hands up for BBFD!!
We are so excited to announce that Beat Bama Food Drive's kickoff is tomorrow, OCTOBER 1ST! While everyone's been thinking about homecoming, we've been thinking about how we can beat Bama and beat hunger at the same time! We have been working tirelessly to get ready for this day, and we can't believe it's already here!
For the next few weeks, we will be out on the concourse &&& out on the town raising awareness and collecting cans. AND we would love to have y'all get involved! From October 1st to November 16th, you can help us BEAT HUNGER & BEAT BAMA by donating directly to our drive or volunteering at the Easy Alabama Food Bank!
Also, be sure to check back these next few weeks to learn more about us and what we do :)
War Eagle, and Beat Bama!
This week, our staff got to go visit the Food Bank of East Alabama (if you couldn't already tell from the title)! The culmination of all our hard work, effort, and support from the community will all come together at the Food Bank of East Alabama this upcoming fall, and it was a great experience to come and see where the magic happens. Some of our staff had already had the privilege of getting to visit, but for many of us, it was a humbling experience; it's so incredible to see that our efforts in this food drive help stock this food bank so that we, too, can help alleviate hunger.
Keep checking our website, social media, and blog (my fave, duh!) for more updates on how YOU can become involved and help us fight the war on hunger!
Check out our staff having so much fun during our visit! :)
We are so excited to announce the new edition of our website, our Blog! Here, we hope that we will be able to keep you all updated on all things BBFD and share with you our excitement as we get closer to reaching our goal. BBFD is very near and dear to our hearts, and we hope that you will come to love this organization as much as we do.
This past year, BBFD raised a whopping 211, 625 pounds, and we BEAT BAMA by 95, 255 pounds. However, the most wonderful aspect of this drive is that no one is a loser, and both the Food Bank of East Alabama and the West Alabama Food Bank were able to provide food for many individuals and help beat hunger.
This upcoming year, we hope to be able to help relieve the stress of food insecurity for many more people. BBFD staff has already begun working hard in order to ensure that we are successful in the fall!
