The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia’s Childhood Nutrition Program, called Food 2 Kids, center around In-School Pantries and Mobile School Pantries. In these programs, nonprofit or religious partners help support and organize food distributions in schools, Boys & Girls Clubs, etc.

Food 2 Kids Programs


Mobile School Food Pantry

The Mobile School Food Pantry program distributes bulk food directly to families. The Food Bank partners with local schools in multiple counties to set up monthly food pantry events on-site to benefit families with children. The program utilizes refrigerated trucks from the Food Bank’s fleet to set up a drive-through style event where families can receive up to 50 pounds of fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, meats, and shelf-stable foods. This program is designed to eliminate the need for expensive and large cold storage options on-site and to bring food directly to people in their own communities. It functions like our Mobile School Food Pantry program but is directed to children and families specifically rather than being open to the general public

In-School Pantries

In-School pantries are open during the school year and offers staples like canned goods, pasta, fruit, and cereal, as well as hygiene products and school supplies. In school pantries provide a respectful experience to the students we serve, removing some of the stigma from receiving food assistance. With students and volunteers involved in running the program, the school and surrounding community takes pride in their ownership of the pantry. This truly is a community-wide effort to end hunger.

For every $1 the Food Bank receives, we are able to distribute 3 balanced meals
