The General Muir has been compared – with good reason – to the Jewish delicatessens of New York City. With freshly baked bagels, crusty rye breads, latkes with applesauce, and house-cured pastrami and corned beef, it’s become a favorite among locals and homesick New Yorkers. So it’s no surprise that Chef Todd Ginsberg decided to explore the traditional foods of Passover in this class. Whether you are planning your own Passover Seder or just want to learn some great recipes from a revered chef, this is the class for you!
The 11Alive Community Service Awards began in 1975 as a way to annually honor persons who had contributed significantly to their communities. The black tie dinner and awards telecast airs on WXIA and WATL-TV and honors 11Who Care. Each year, the program also salutes a charity and makes it the beneficiary of the evening’s proceeds. This year, the Atlanta Community Food Bank was selected! Dinner Co-Chairs for the 40th anniversary event will be Arthur Blank and Kevin Rathbun.
Take a swing against hunger at the Doctors’ annual summer tournament. Scramble format includes contests for Hole in One and Longest Drive. Entry fees benefit ACFB.

Outnumber Hunger is an initiative that makes it easy for people to join in the fight against hunger in their own communities. Specially marked food packages direct consumers to enter codes online at www.OutnumberHunger.com to help Feeding America secure meals for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. For every code entered by March 1, 2014, Outnumber Hunger will donate $0.65 – enough to secure five meals on behalf of local food banks.
Each spring, Publix Super Markets customers can donate at the register to provide food for hungry families. As a token of appreciation, customers making a donation will receive a special Food for Sharing reusable bag.
ACFB's Supper Club is simple. One night each month, a top Atlanta restaurant serves as our Supper Club host, and they donate 20% of the evening's proceeds to ACFB. What better way to enjoy an excellent meal while giving back to the community?
