 Atlanta Community Food Bank

Atlanta Community Food Bank    www.acfb.org 

The Atlanta Community Food Bank is a nonprofit working to end hunger across metro Atlanta and north Georgia. There are too many children, seniors and working families experiencing hunger. We work with more than 600 community partners to provide food to more than 755,000 people each year. It takes lots of food, people and big ideas to guarantee that our neighbors have the nutritious food they need for a healthy life. Our goal is that by 2025 everyone in the Food Bank's 29-county service area will have access to the nutritious meals they need when they need them. The Hunger Walk/Run is an integral fundraising, community building and awareness initiative of the Food Bank. We thank you for taking the next step in helping us end hunger!
