We recently teamed up with 11Alive to pull together some special programming highlighting the issue of hunger in Atlanta and Georgia in conjunction with the Outnumber Hunger concert that aired right after. The facts were presented, Brenda Wood was given a tour of the Food Bank by our executive director and founder, Bill Bolling, and we met Irene, a single mom of four kids who struggles to put food on the table. 11Alive has posted the entire special on their website and we encourage everyone to watch it.
During the initial broadcast, we were taking phone donations on air and people could also donate online. In just one hour, viewers donated $5,125--enough to provide 20,500 meals. Thank you to everyone who donated. If you didn’t have a chance to donate then, you still have the opportunity! Visit www.acfb.org/FeedAtlanta to make a donation!
