How to Donate Food for the Hungry around Atlanta GA

Everyone here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA, believes in giving back to our community all year round. But there’s also no denying that people’s willingness to give increases exponentially during the holiday season. And we’re hoping that holds true this holiday season, as there are many in our community and the surrounding communities who don’t have enough to eat. But there are things we can do to help those hungry members of our community – and it all starts with a trip to a local food pantry. There are a wide array of food pantries and hunger organizations working tirelessly to help those in need in the Atlanta area, and we’re going to shine a spotlight on some of those organizations right here as we tell you all you need to know about how to donate food for the hungry around Atlanta, GA.

While hunger in the Atlanta community and Georgia as a whole has been around for far longer than 30 years, it’s been tirelessly combated by the Georgia Food Bank Association for the last 30-plus years. The Atlanta branch of the association is known as the Atlanta Community Food Bank. So, no matter where you are in Georgia, either of the links above can help you find all you need to know about how to help the hungry here in our great state. And it’s important to remember, too, that even if money is tight for you and you can’t help out with donations of food, donations of time are always needed as well.

Check with Your Church

The Georgia Food Bank Association isn’t the only entity fighting hunger here in our communities. Many local churches also combat hunger in their communities with food banks and food drives. If you want to keep things close to home, make sure to check in with your local church to see what they need to help fight hunger.

And if you find yourself in need of any kind of automotive service or a new Ford model to get you to and from your local food pantry, please get in touch with our staff here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA.
