3 ways to help Birmingham area families in need this season

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — It’s that time of year when agencies that help families year round with food can use your help with donations.

This afternoon I spent some time with the team at The Foundry and Patti the Produce Wagon. We met a wonderful group at Jess Lanier manor in Bessemer where we handed out fresh produce. The Foundry feeds 400 people a day through programs like Patti the Produce Wagon.

Here are three ways you can help them meet their goals of serving the 400 families a day they feed:

  •   Host a food drive to collect canned goods at home or work.
  •   Partner with boxes of hope: where your family fills a box for holiday meals that the foundry will deliver.
  •   Make a financial donation to The Foundry on their website.
