Event description

Description

Join us on Thursday, December 14th (6-8:30PM) to volunteer at Atlanta Community Food Bank's Product Rescue Center!

Atlanta Community Food Bank distributes over 60 million meals to more than 755,000 people across Atlanta metro and north Georgia every year. Their Product Rescue Center is the is the area of the Food Bank where all food drive and salvaged food items are brought to be inspected and packaged by volunteers for distribution to more than 600 nonprofit partner agencies.

  • REGISTER - After you sign up here, you will receive information on how to register for the event with Atlanta Community Food Bank prior to volunteering.

  • MEET - Please arrive a few minutes early for a brief orientation.

  • PARK - Upon arrival into the main entrance (look for the big high sign with our orange peach logo), the parking lot will be to your left (on slight hill). After exiting your vehicle, look left for the fence covered walkway (affectionately known as “the cage”) with the Product Rescue Center Volunteers sign. Follow the fenced walkway to the PRC door.

  • WEAR - Closed-toe and closed-heel shoes are required, with sneakers or work boots recommended. Flips flops, sandals or heeled shoes are not allowed. Please wear comfortable clothing you do not mind getting a bit rumpled.

  • OPTIONAL DONATIONS: With 1 in every 5 Georgians and 1 in 4 Georgia children at risk of hunger, the number of people requesting emergency food assistance continues to grow. If every volunteer visiting our Product Rescue Center brings just two cans of food, we would be able to provide approximately 2,750 additional meals each month! Please consider bringing as many nonperishable items as you can. You're already making a tremendous difference by volunteering. Think how much that can be magnified by grabbing a couple of food items to bring with you when you come! We're always in need of natural peanut butter, canned chicken, and canned fruits & vegetables.
