Georgia Mountain Food Bank

Georgia Mountain Food Bank’s (GMFB) mission is to address hunger, health and quality of life by serving those in need throughout North Georgia. GMFB provides a vital link between sources of food supplies and hardworking community-based partner agencies who help get the food into the hands of families and individuals who need it. Whether it’s distributing food or serving the community through outreach programs, initiatives and resources, Georgia Mountain Food Bank’s time to serve is now.

Through community partnerships, GMFB helps to increase food supplies in rural parts of North Georgia, effectively connecting more food to people in need. The food we distribute comes through our partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank along with goods donated locally from retailers, manufacturers, distributors and food drives.

Volunteers and advocates help us complete our mission of bringing nutritious food to those in need. They are the backbone of the Georgia Mountain Food Bank. Whether giving time or financial resources, the friends of GMFB help us reach people in need and are critical to our success. 

Volunteers will be sorting and packing food boxes. Max volunteers: 30

Backpack Love

Many families in our community are faced with the frightening uncertainty of not knowing where they will find their next meal. Fueled by a passion to ensure children don’t go hungry over the weekends, our BackPack Love program reaches kids and their families where they are and when they need it most. Our hope is to distribute enough food each weekend to nourish every hungry family. Through volunteer teams and church partners backpacks are filled with enough food to feed a family of five for the weekend and are delivered to partner schools for distribution each week.

Volunteers will be sorting food, unloading trucks and assisting as needed.

Max Volunteers: 10
