About the organization

The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia is a 501(c)3 comprised of a primary distribution facility in Athens, Georgia with a second distribution facility located in Clayton, Georgia – the Mountain Regional Branch. The Food Bank recovers donated and salvaged surplus food and distributes it to residents in need through human-service partner agencies. The Food Bank works with local, regional, state, and national product partners to bring food into the community. The Food Bank was founded in 1992 in an effort to end hunger in Northeast Georgia. In that first year, the Food Bank distributed approximately 350,000 pounds of food to thirty-six local agencies. The organization has grown tremendously since then, distributing nearly 12 million pounds of food through more than 225 partner organizations.
