Food Bank of Northeast Georgia
"Empowering communities to ensure no neighbor experiences hunger."
The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia is a 501(c)3 not-forprofit organization affiliated with Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, which gathers purchased surplus food and donated items from local, regional, state, and national product partners. The product partners who donate to us include manufacturers, retailers, grocers, local farmers, USDA, GNAP, and more. The food donations we secure mostly consist of fresh bread and produce, as well as items that might have damaged packaging, were overproduced, or are getting close to the sell-by date. Upon processing and screening the donations to ensure health safety guidelines are met, we then distribute the processed donations to human-service agencies. The majority of our food is directly provided by local human-service agencies to individuals suffering from food insecurity. These partner agencies include organizations such as: soup kitchens, shelters, rehabilitation sites, and other social programs where clients may need to eat and sometimes live on-site.
Volunteers are vital to our mission of fighting food-insecurity in our communities. Our programs continue to grow each year, reaching more individuals within the Northeast Georgia region struggling with food insecurity, and we could not address these needs without the help of our volunteers. Whether you provide administrative support, sort food in our warehouse, or weed in our Teaching Garden, volunteers are vital and deeply appreciated.
