For every $1 the Food Bank receives, we are able to distribute 6 meals. A small gift of just $5 will help the Food Bank distribute all of the healthy food you see to the left to those that need it. The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia does not sell, trade, or share the names of those who have so generously given to support our work to end hunger.
Food drives are an easy way for you to show your support for the community and make a huge difference in the lives of many. Giving your food drive some thought and preparation beforehand will make all the difference in the world. The Food Bank has staff to support you along the way.
We are a network of friends working to feed the ill, needy, seniors, and children of northeast Georgia. Our mission is to work toward ending hunger as part of an overall effort to alleviate poverty in our community.
