The ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to impact those struggling with hunger. The Atlanta Community Food Bank is gathering every possible resource to provide food and supplies to all who need it, but we’re facing a sharp increase in demand.
More kids, parents, and seniors in our community are going hungry as a result of this ongoing crisis. Those who were already struggling face even greater challenges — not only to be fed, but to stay healthy. Nourishing food is the most basic need for our vulnerable neighbors. Your gift at this time is urgently needed and will help us:
- Purchase emergency food to support increased food distributions across our network
- Partner with schools to feed families who have lost access to school meals
- Provide food boxes to homebound, at-risk seniors who can't leave home to purchase groceries
- Deploy mobile food pantries to high-need areas of our community
Please give now to help those struggling with hunger — and let them know they’re not alone.
We don’t know what the future holds, but we know your kindness is needed right now. Thank you!
