Food, Glorious Food (and School Supplies!)


Our wonderful city is a bustling business hub, and the Atlanta Community Food Bank LOVES it when trade shows come to town! Two trade shows coming to the Georgia World Congress Center provide a great opportunity for the Food Bank to procure thousands of pounds of food and school supplies. At the conclusion of the shows, many of the participating vendors will donate their products on display to ACFB, and volunteers are needed to help us glean the items from the show floor.  

These opportunities are perfect for corporate or university groups or individual adult volunteers. Volunteers should be able to lift between 15 and 40 lbs and stand for prolonged periods of time.

The trade show volunteer opportunities are as follows:

National School Supply and Equipment Association Trade Show
January 18, 2pm to 6pm  
Register Your Interest

Kehe Food Show
February 6 – 5pm to 9pm (exact times TBA)
Register Your Interest

Exact start and end times for each volunteer opportunity are TBA. If you are interested in helping, please click on “Register your Interest” on the opportunity that interests you and specify which show in the additional comments. We’ll respond via email within 2 or 3 business days to discuss scheduling for you or your group.
