Supporting the Atlanta Community Food Bank


The Atlanta Community Food Bank is a remarkable charity organization located in Atlanta, Georgia.  Entering the holiday season, many look to the Atlanta Community Food Bank(ACFB) to provide food and other services to help those less fortunate.  Corporations, restaurants and other small business  in the Atlanta area find ways to contribute through fund-raising and food drives to help the ACFB carry out its mission.

Support the ACFB and partnering restaurants/businesses this holiday season.  Let’s make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate in North Georgia.  If you don’t live in the area, support Feeding America.

Here’s an overview of the Atlanta Community Food Bank taken from their website:

Founded in 1979, the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) currently distributes nearly two million pounds of food and other donated grocery items each month to more than 700 nonprofit partner agencies in 38 counties in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia.

ACFB supports a wide range of people in need, from children to the working poor. Food pantries, community kitchens, childcare centers, night shelters and senior centers are among the agencies that receive product from the Food Bank and provide food and other critical resources for low-income Georgians who suffer from hunger and food insecurity. The Food Bank also operates several community projects to aid our agencies in community building, technical assistance and advocacy efforts.

The Food Bank has a number of projects that enhance our core work of food distribution and help build community. These include The Atlanta Prosperity CampaignAtlanta’s TableCommunity GardensHunger 101Hunger Walk/RunKids In Need, and the Product Rescue Center.
