Mighty Family: Our Community Needs Help

The pandemic continues to impact many who struggle with hunger. The Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB), an organization dedicated to providing food and supplies to those in need throughout 29 counties in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia, is facing a sharp increase in demand.

There has been a 300% increase in demand for food assistance from parents, kids, and seniors in our community. ACFB is distributing 40-50% more food each week than during the same period last year. Those who were already struggling face even greater challenges — not only to be fed, but to stay healthy with nourishing food. For every $1 donated, the food bank can provide up to 4 meals.
Food, supplies, and monetary donations are urgently needed to help ACFB:
  • Purchase emergency food to support increased food distributions 
  • Partner with schools to feed families who have lost access to school meals
  • Provide food boxes to homebound, at-risk seniors
  • Deploy mobile food pantries to high-need areas of our community
Hunger does not just affect the homeless; someone you see everyday could be in need. For kids, food insecurity is detrimental to education and can cause long-term psychological damage. A good video on this subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G49UwR8PaBs.
Let's help our neighbors and let them know they are not alone. 
We don’t know what the future holds, but we know kindness and generosity are needed right now. The Team Mighty goal is $1,000 and 600 pounds of food. To help us get there, MDSA will match MOA and MAP-A employee donations if we collect a minimum of $500 (so, to do the most good, we need to reach $500). For the needed items, 3 barrels will be delivered to the office; each barrel will hold 200 pounds of food. 
If you have any questions, please see Tracy, Heather, or Katie. Thank you for whatever you can contribute!

P.S. If you have any family members that may like to help, feel free to forward a link to this page.
