Founded in 1979, ACFB procures more than 60 million pounds of food and groceries each year and distributes it to more than 600 nonprofit partner agencies serving families and individuals in 29 metro Atlanta and north Georgia counties.
The Atlanta Community Food Band utilizes more than 1,700 volunteers a month, over 150 staff members, a large fleet of trucks and a 129,000 square-foot facility to procure and distribute food and grocery items received from hundreds of donors. It's donors include manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, brokers, restaurants, food drives, gardens and individuals. ACDB's partner agencies place their orders online and arrange for pick up or delivery. Once the food arrives at the agency, it is provided to families and individuals in need.
The mission of the Atlanta Community Food Bank is to fight hunger by engaging, educating and empowering our community. While the core of their work is food distribution, their efforts extend far beyond that. The ACFB's mission is lived out every day through seven projects that help engage, educate and empower both people in need and those who want to help. From supporting community gardens to assisting people in finding economic security, ACFB covers a wide range of opportunities for people to learn and get involved.
