Thanks for helping us to EXCEED our goal!
Our December 2020 goal was to donate 50,000 meals to the Atlanta Community Food Bank through collecting donations and also donating 2 meals for every meal sold. Thanks to you, we were able to greatly exceed that goal, and donate $20,813, which is the equivalent to providing 166,000 meals to hungry children, hardworking families and struggling seniors. Thank you for your support and helping the food bank meet the urgent need for food during this continued crisis.
Hunger is on the rise in Atlanta.
The coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic upheaval had a near catastrophic impact on the nutritional safety of our community. After COVID-19 hit, the Atlanta Community Food Bank saw a nearly 300% increase in requests for food assistance. The number of food insecure people in ACFB’s 29-county service area jumped from 658,000 people to 863,000 as a result of COVID-19, an increase of 31%.
