Community Food Bank of Central Alabama Working to Close the Hunger Gap with New Partnership

The Dairy Alliance Chief Strategy Officer, Debbie McKenzie, and Community Food Bank of Central Alabama Director of Partnerships, Elizabeth Wix, are making a big impact locally with the announcement of the Milk2MyPlate program launch today. This milk purchasing program is the first of its kind in Birmingham to benefit food-insecure families. The Dairy Alliance provided a $35,000 grant to purchase new refrigeration units for the mobile Corner Market, a program launched by the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama to serve low-income families, disabled people and senior citizens living in neighborhoods without full-service grocery store. Through this initiative, the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama will receive 60 gallons of fresh milk a week over the next year to distribute to families in need across its 12 county service area.
