Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Grace Klein Community exists as an educational and charitable 501(c)3 non-profit providing relief to the poor, the distressed and the underprivileged, lessening community tensions, eliminating prejudice and discrimination and combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.

Grace Klein Community seeks to create authentic community (Koinonia) by uniting diverse individuals, businesses, ministries, and churches to work together by sharing what they have in order to meet physical and spiritual needs both locally and globally.

Through the mobilization of volunteers.

Grace Klein Community (GKC) became a 501(c)3 non-profit in April 2010, and today provides food assistance to 10,000+/- people each week.

GKC is vital to over 25,000 households, providing food insecure individuals healthy nutritious food and empowering them to start a journey to independence. Our Food Delivery and Family Assistance Program has shown much growth over the years; beginning with 58 families served monthly in 2010, to 238 monthly in 2015, to
approximately 493 families served monthly in 2020, before the onset of COVID-19, reflecting a 51.72 percent increase in the number of families served over a 5 year period.

With the onset of COVID-19, GKC distributed 2,420 food boxes in March 2020, providing food for approximately 12,000 individuals, resulting in a 79.62% increase in families served through food support in 1 month. The current global environment makes our services more vital than ever, impacting families in every socio-economic class, due to illness, stay-at-home orders, children requiring virtual study, job loss, and subsequent loss of income.

Food support meets basic needs allowing people to focus on their jobs, paying other outstanding bills to protect or improve their existing living arrangements, and also to give peace of mind to parents and guardians who have children to feed. When basic needs are met, the individual has a greater potential of being released from the cycle of poverty as they are able to focus on their work and not be distracted by anxiety and fear of survival.

Our Food Program is largely implemented by Birmingham-area volunteers and serves low-income individuals in Jefferson, Shelby, Walker, St. Clair, Blount, Bibb, Tuscaloosa, Chilton, Cullman, Coffee, Greene, Lamar, Madison, Montgomery, Morgan, Randolph and Talladega Counties.

Our goal is to maintain and increase operations by adding 25 food rescue partners and 200 food rescue volunteers which will increase our ability to share food with 30% more people.

In addition to food resources, the need for clothing and household items (not limited to) are met through our online Facebook share group called, Acts 4:32.
