The Food Bank is currently working with our partner network, including local school systems, to assess how they can support the community through the current COVID-19 situation. They are purchasing additional food to help with emergency food distributions.
You can help, donate online http://engage.acfb.org/goto/DekalbCountyFoodDrive. Please make a cash contribution of any size to the Atlanta Community Food Bank and remember that a $25 donation can help provide enough food for up to 100 meals in the community.
The Atlanta Community Food Bank has launched their new “Text for Help ” SMS platform to assist those children, families and seniors who need access to food during the current crisis of the COVID-19 coronavirus. This easy-to-use phone-based program enables its users to locate the nearest food pantries simply by sending a text.
Text “FINDFOOD” for responses in English or “COMIDA” for responses in Spanish to 888-976-2232 to get locations near you. *Standard Carrier Message and Data Rates May Apply, based on your cell phone carrier.
In addition to the text for help option, you can find Food Bank partners who are providing food to those in need during this time on this interactive map. Please call ahead if you plan on going to one of these locations.
