Food Donation

In Kind Food Donations Donor Program

Alabama Public Radio relies on our many volunteers to help ensure our Membership Drives and other APR events in which volunteers are involved run smoothly and successfully. To keep our volunteers going — and happy — during their shifts, local businesses and national chains generously donate food, beverages and related items. Find out more about donor benefits and recognition.

As a food donor, you determine the frequency of donations and decide what amount of participation is right for you and your business.  Alabama Public Radio fund drives are held twice per year: April and September. During each fund drive, our goal is to feed breakfast, lunch, and dinner to a group of 12-20 volunteers.  We may have other opportunities throughout the year and would be happy to include you.

Your support is essential to what we do, and our goal is to make your donation experience as positive and convenient as possible. We can arrange for your donation to be picked up and we can recognize your contribution in a variety of ways.
