Basics

ACFB Partner Agencies

The Atlanta Community Food Bank currently partners with over 600 nonprofit organizations in 29 metro Atlanta and north Georgia counties to provide groceries and meals for hundreds of thousands of people who are struggling to put food on the table. See a map of our service area

We call these nonprofits our “partner agencies” because we partner together with them to get food to those in need. They receive product from us and, in turn, they provide that product to their clients. ACFB partner agencies include food pantries, community kitchens, shelters, after school programs and more. Their clients include families and individuals who do not have enough financial resources to access enough food for a healthy life.

How It Works

Food assistance programs must be located in an area of targeted recruitment as established by the Atlanta Community Food Bank using data from Feeding America, National Network of Food Banks, and the U.S. Census.

This is done to ensure the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s resources are allocated strategically and equitably into all communities with need in our service area. 

Currently, food distribution programs that are considered high priority are:

  • food pantries
  • soup kitchens
  • shelters
  • kids programs

Once an agency has been approved and gone through the process of becoming a partner, they can access product from ACFB as often as they like, however, amounts for some items may be limited for some orders. Partner agencies place their orders online through our “eHarvest” system and arrange for pick-up or delivery at a time and date convenient to them. Once the food arrives at the agency, it is distributed to families and individuals in need. Some agencies provide groceries, others provide meals on site, and others offer a combination of both.
