Hunger Relief

United Way of Central Alabama believes

No one should go hungry.

In five of the six counties we serve, more than one in 10 people struggle to access enough food for a healthy life. Across Alabama, nearly 20% of children face uncertainty about their next meal.

United Way works to eliminate hunger through local foodbanks, summer feeding programs, distributing free groceries, delivering meals and more.
