Great Things are Happening at ACFS

Alabama Childhood Food Solutions is thankful for the partnership we have had with Publix Super Markets Charities since 2016 as they continue to give back to the local community in which their stores are located.  ACFS can provide more than 1.2 million pounds of nutritious food annually to those that need it the most and this is directly attributed to Publix Super Markets Charities' commitment to help end hunger. Working together we can alleviate the hunger crisis in Alabama! Thank you, Publix Super Markets Charities!




  • Shellie Jo grew up in central Alabama in the north Shelby County area. She always had a heart serving others after watching her parents care for a poor community in their area for several years while growing up. Between her father giving them jobs to let them work for much needed money to her mother preparing and feeding them Christmas dinners she learned to have compassion early in life for families with food and financial insecurity.

    She was married in 1993 and after having homeschooled her three children and then working as a preschool teacher for 10+ years she was approached with the opportunity to work for ACFS and she jumped at it. Now getting to be a part of the miracle of ACFS and help children and their families with food insecurity is the purpose she believes that the Lord has given her so she can not only make a positive impact on the lives of children and families facing food insecurity but her community as well.
