Feeding the Gulf Coast is a disaster relief organization. Our Theodore facility will transition into an emergency shelter during times of crisis or disaster. Our warehouse is equipped with a back up generator, an industrial-sized kitchen, and shower stations. We also have on hand emergency supplies such as food and water. Anytime a major disaster strikes in our service area, Feeding America sends food and supplies. We work to get those supplies as quickly as possible to affected communities. We coordinate disaster efforts with local government officials, Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) and the American Red Cross to ensure unduplicated, efficient and timely relief.
Ways to Get Involved
In the event of a disaster, volunteers are needed to pack and distribute emergency food boxes, assist with mobile pantries, or make and answer phone calls.
If you would like to be added to our database of emergency volunteers, please fill out this form and list Emergency Response under which opportunity you are interested in.
There is always a sense of urgency to quickly help those in need after a disaster strikes. However, the need for relief efforts continue for months after the disaster is over. Feeding America member food banks remain in communities long after other disaster organizations leave. Feeding America’s network of food banks continue to respond for weeks, months and even years to bring hope for survival and a brighter future.
