Food Bank Facts

The Atlanta Community Food Bank works to end hunger with the food, people and big ideas needed to ensure our neighbors have the nourishment to lead healthy and productive lives. Far too many people in our own community experience hunger every day, including children, seniors and working families.

Through more than 600 nonprofit partners, we help more than 755,000 people get healthy food every year. Our goal is that, by 2025, all hungry people across metro Atlanta and North Georgia will have access to the nutritious meals they need when they need them. It takes the power of our whole community to make that possible. Join us at ACFB.org.

Visit our Facts & Stats page to see the most current statistics on hunger and poverty, and how the Atlanta Community Food Bank is responding to the issues, including our latest distribution numbers.

The Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the national network of more than 200 food banks. For more information on Feeding America visit www.feedingamerica.org
