Basics

UPDATE January 28, 2019: Pop Up Pantries updated.

UPDATE January 25, 2019: While we are appreciative the government has reached a temporary agreement for the next three weeks, we are still monitoring the situation as needed with those who have been affected and will continue with our planned distributions.

Are you a federal employee or contractor impacted by the government shutdown? We understand the uncertainty and additional stress you are facing. The Atlanta Community Food Bank and our partner agencies are ready to help.

Local Food Pantries
Each county tab has a list of large public food pantries where you can go to get the assistance you need to ensure you can keep food on the table and continue to meet the nutritional needs for yourself and your family. Please make sure to visit a pantry within your own county unless it is a pop-up pantry. Bring proof of identification and address for the most robust access to services. Also, don't hesitate to check their website or call ahead to know about any service limitations, additional services provided, documentation required or other important information.

If you cannot get to one of these listed, the Food Bank partners with over 600 pantries in our 29-county service area. Please use our Local Impact Map to find a pantry or kitchen close to you. You can also 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
We'll be updating the page regularly for pop-up pantries where you can get additional assistance with food that will be happening throughout our service area. 

Benefits Assistance
We screen individuals and families to see if they are eligible for benefits like SNAP (food stamps). Want to know if you could receive food stamps (SNAP) or other government benefits? Email benefits@acfb.org or call (678) 553-5917.
