Alabama Food Bank Association has received support from Wind Creek Hospitality, a company owned by the Alabama-based Poarch Band of Creek Indians, to help provide 250,000 meals to Alabama families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This support comes at a critical time for food banks in Alabama as they respond to a greater need during this unprecedented crisis.

“Because of the generous support from Wind Creek, our food banks are able to serve families experiencing economic crisis during this pandemic. Our network’s hunger-relief programs help deliver millions of pounds of nutritious food to the communities we serve across Alabama,” Laura Lester, executive director of the Alabama Food Bank Association, said.

“Wind Creek isn’t on the front lines of the pandemic crisis, but we want to support those who are. We’re proud to come alongside the Alabama Food Bank Association in providing food and hope to families and children who need it most,” Magi Williams, Wind Creek’s Director of Public Relations, said.
