Of Alabama’s children struggle with food insecurity
Alabama is the fifth poorest state in the nation, causing 17% of adults and 23% of children (1 out of 4) to
struggle with food insecurity.
Access to quality food unleashes the creativity of kids freeing them to pursue a future limited only by their imagination.
When Vietnam Vet, Edward Burks, discovered that his neighbor had died from from Covid19 leaving a wife and three kids (aged 6, 9, 12), he wanted to help. The wife was unable to find work, and the family was struggling. Edward began making appointments and coming in to the pantry every Month to pick up groceries for them, and two other neighbors who were food-insecure.
We hear stories like Edward’s all the time: family members who have died, lost work, and elderly people struggling to live on a fixed income. We see neighbors helping neighbors, and friends helping friends.
When we say “Love All,” it’s not an empty slogan. It encapsulates our mission to serve our community by providing food for the hungry and food-insecure.
