The Salvation Army of Greater Birmingham 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 of Greater Birmingham and/or The Salvation Army Bessemer Service Center.   Food donations can be dropped off at 2015 26th Ave North in Birmingham, Monday-Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and at the Bessemer Service Center at 525 13th Street North in Bessemer.  For pick up and delivery in Birmingham call 205-328-2420.
