About This Activity

The Full Belly 5K is a 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk to support Alabama Childhood Food Solutions and will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2016 in beautiful Mt. Laurel. ACFS is an entirely volunteer run organization that uses 100% of donations to purchase, store, and distribute food to children and families in need, so you can be assured that the proceeds of this race will directly impact those who are served by ACFS. In our first annual race in 2015, we were able to sponsor food for over 250 children for a month. We would love to triple that number this year!

  • Alabama Childhood Food Solutions (ACFS) is a 501c3 organization who provides food to children and families who are “food insecure”, or unsure of how or where they are going to get food when their family may have none. Over the past year, ACFS has increased its food provisions to students in Shelby, Talladega, and Coosa Counties from 1,200 students this time last year to 1,950 students last month. These are students who have been identified by their school counselors as being food insecure and dependent upon the free breakfasts and lunches they receive at school because food is scarce at home. Once per month, ACFS also shares over 15,000 pounds of food to more than 350 families which equates to providing food assistance to additional 1,250-1,350 people per month.
