Have you ever wondered how the Food Bank receives and distributes more than 35 million pounds of food for the hungry each year? Operations Manager Ron Burns makes it easy to understand as he describes what happens to the food once it arrives at our warehouse and how we prepare it for distribution to our partner agencies. While he's talking, you'll see for yourself how the food moves through our warehouse.
Recently, we had the opportunity to go to a local low-income retirement community for a Commodity Supplemental Food Programs (CSFP) distribution. The CSFP is a federally funded program designed to assist low-income senior citizens, mothers and children. We also had mobile benefits screeners from the Food Bank's Atlanta Prosperity Campaign to help those who qualified to apply for food stamps and Medicaid. Watch the video and learn more about our day.
