Our Mission

The Selma Area Food Bank has been in operation since October 18,1993. Through the years we have been able to distribute food to many people that otherwise would have gone hungry. It is our goal to stop hunger, right here at home. Our service area includes 4 counties: Dallas, Wilcox, Marengo and Perry. We have almost 50 active agencies that receive food from us and distribute to their community. The Selma Area Food Bank is a warehouse for bulk food items. The food comes from donations and local businesses. Our community is what has kept us going for so many years. We never take a donation for granted and appreciate all efforts to help the food bank grow. If you are looking for a worthy cause you have found a good one. Every $1 will provide 14 pounds of food. 14 pounds of food could be used to prepare several meals. Feeding America has made a huge effort to increase awareness of hunger in the United States.

ATTENTION: If you are a Senior Citizen (60 or older) and live in the Dallas, Perry, Marengo or Wilcox county area, we would love for you to sign up for our Commodity Supplemental Food Program.
