The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia provides our members access to millions of pounds of food they might not otherwise have. Members gain access to food either through our online inventory system or by selecting items from our sharing floor.
The online inventory system provides bulks, cased items for distribution. All items are ordered in case or pallet-size quantities. The shopping floor provides supplemental food and is a lot like a grocery store allowing members to hand select less-than-case amounts of food from the shelves or pallets of miscellaneous product.

The Food Bank is able to conduct its mission due to three distinct and critical funding sources. These three are as follows:
- Private source donations
- Government grants and funds
- Agency Shared Maintenance Donations
The food the Food Bank receives is often donated. However, the costs associated with the acquisition, processing, storing, and distributing of this food can be significant.
Upon signing the contract, our members agree to support our work by a cents per pound contribution. This is referred to as an Agency Shared Maintenance Donation and helps to support our operational and food sourcing efforts.
