Inspired by scripture from the prophet Isaiah, “to share your food with the hungry”, Atlanta’s Jewish Community holds their metro-wide food drive each year during the High Holy Days. 

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?

Supper Club is on summer vacation, but we want to know: where would you like to see our next Supper Club? Email us at supperclub@acfb.org with your suggestion!
