The Atlanta Community Food Bank is not only a vital part of Atlanta’s health and well-being, AFCB is also an innovator and leader in serving the needs of the hungry. Did you know that 1 in 7 people in our Metro turn to a food pantry or meal service program supplied by AFCB each year? It’s more than we thought too! In fact, last year, AFCB distributed over 60 million pounds of food, more than 50 million meals.
Join us on February 12th to see how it all happens. We will begin with lunch and a brief presentation by AFCB on the facility, the organization, and how it fits into the national picture. Then on to a tour of the facility including the Product Rescue Center (PRC), the area of AFCB where all food drive and salvaged food items are brought to be inspected and packaged by volunteers to be distributed to more than 600 nonprofit partner agencies.
