At Atlanta Eats we love Atlanta’s food and restaurant community, but it’s important, especially during the season of giving, to think of those less fortunate who face hunger every day. That’s why we were proud to focus on our lens on the Atlanta Community Food Bank, who distributes over 60 million meals to more than 755,000 people in 29 counties across metro Atlanta and North Georgia.
From the Atlanta Community Food Bank website
More than 1 in every 4 Georgia kids live in food insecure households.
Each year, an estimated 755,400 (or 1 in 7) people in metro Atlanta and north Georgia turn to Food Bank partner agencies for food. Clients visit agencies an average of 8 times a year.
95 cents of every dollar donated to ACFB (including the value of all donated food) goes directly to services in the community to help fight hunger.
