Atlanta Community Food Bank’s mission to serve those most in need has deeply touched our hearts. Atlanta Community Food Bank also refers those in need to other services that connect individuals and families to local providers offering services such as affordable housing options, shelters, rent/utility assistance, free to low-cost health services, job skills and food/clothing pantries.
One of Atlanta Community Food Bank’s projects is named Atlanta’s Table. This project collects prepared food from Atlanta’s Hospitality Industry. Restaurants, caterers, corporate dining rooms, hotels, convention centers, special events and other food service providers are among the more than 200 hospitality industry donors that regularly contribute food to Atlanta’s Table. Atlanta’s Table collects and distributes thousands of pounds of food every month. For agencies feeding large numbers of people, Atlanta’s Table is an invaluable resource. Family Shelters, childcare centers and community kitchens are among the agencies that benefit from this service.
Kids In Need is another project of Atlanta Community Food Bank. With the firm belief that every child deserves the tools they need for academic achievement, ACFB developed Kids In Need, a year-round free store for educators. The Kids In Need mission is to provide learning supplies for students whose academic success is threatened by poverty. For a school to qualify, at least 80% of the students must be enrolled in the federal free and reduced meal program. There is absolutely no cost to teachers or schools. The Kids In Need facility is set up much like a retail store and is continuously stocked with school and art supplies for grade levels Pre-K through 12.
