Find Help

The Atlanta Community Food Bank does not provide direct food/grocery assistance to families and individuals, but rather is a key source of food in our 29 county service area for a network of “partner agencies” that serve individuals and households in need. Many of these partner agencies are food pantries, enabling people to pick up/receive an assortment of basic food and grocery supplies.   

If you, your family, or someone you know is in need of food assistance, here are two ways to find the closest sources of help:

  1. Use the Agency Locator to discover which Food Bank partner food pantries and community kitchens are in your area. 
  2. Call the United Way’s 2-1-1 “First Call for Help” line to get referrals of agencies near you. They will not only have listings of food pantries, but also will be able to direct you to agencies that provide other services you might need, such as utility assistance, clothing, job training and more.

 

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.
