The Atlanta Community Food Bank partners with a network of 700 nonprofit food pantries and meal programs in 29 counties. These partners receive food from the Food Bank and, in turn, provide it for families and individuals who need assistance. Find a partner in your community with our Local Impact map. A list of pantries and programs will come up with contact info. You will want to call ahead to find out their hours and the zip codes that they serve. Some of our partners only serve people who reside in their zip code while others serve beyond their zip code.
Also, be sure to contact the Food Bank’s benefits outreach team if you think you may qualify for food stamps, WIC or other benefits that could help you through this time: either email email@example.com or call (678) 553-5917. Lastly, visit United Way of Metro Atlanta at http://211online.unitedwayatlanta.org/ or call 2-1-1 to learn about additional programs that might not be affiliated with the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
The Food Bank works with partner agencies and others to coordinate locations and partnerships to distribute fresh produce and other staples to clients who may not know where their next meal is coming from. Our mobile pantry program is an efficient, effective way to provide food to our neighbors in need through direct service. Food is typically distributed outdoors at a church or community center where dozens of volunteers help unload the truck and bag groceries for people in need. We encourage you to call ahead to the nearest mobile pantry to verify the hours of distribution.
