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 benefits@acfb.org 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.

SNAP Assistance

Some SNAP rules have changed because of COVID 19, and the new rules could allow you to receive important benefits during the crisis.  Contact our Benefits Outreach team at (678) 553-5917 to find out if you qualify.

  1. SNAP households may receive a supplemental benefit (more than the regular monthly amount) for the months of March and April 2020.  If you just enrolled in SNAP, you may still receive the benefit for the time that you have been on the program.  Extra benefits will be loaded to the EBT card automatically.
  2. No SNAP recipients are required to file evidence of work through the end of May 2020.  If you lost SNAP benefits because of work requirements, you may be eligible now.  
  3. The recertification deadline for current SNAP households has been extended by 6 months. Households that were required to recertify (re-apply) for SNAP in March, April, May, June, July or August of 2020 will have their deadline automatically extended six months past the original deadline.  
  4. GA DFCS has closed many physical offices to prevent transmission of the virus.  You are encouraged to apply online or request an application over the phone.  In-person visits to DFCS may only be permitted with an appointment.
  5. Other benefit programs, like Medicaid, school meals, and WIC, also have new rules because of COVID 19.  Even if you were not eligible for these programs in the past, you may be able to receive them on an emergency basis.  Call us for more information.

Not sure whether these rules apply to you or your family? The Atlanta Community Food Bank can help.  Call (678) 553-5917 or email benefits@acfb.org to get information right away.

Pop Up Pantries

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.
