The Salvation Army, Greater Birmingham Area Command can’t help hungry people get food without donations from the community. An average of 200 families in Birmingham seek food assistance every month, most with small children. Food drives and donations of all sizes help keep the food pantry shelves full.

Please call 205.328.2420 if you or your group would like to donate food items or host a food drive to support The Salvation Army. Food donations can be dropped off at 2130 11th Ave North in Birmingham during the week between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. or call us to make alternative arrangements. Thank you for your support of our efforts to fight hunger in our community.
