Mission: Through a network of community partners, the georgia mountain food bank addresses hunger, health, and quality of life by serving those in need.
Programs: Georgia mountain food bank (gmfb) is a nonprofit organization with the mission to mobilize resources to fight hunger in our community. The core work of gmfb is the collection and distribution of donated food and other grocery products to charitable agencies in a five county service area in northeast georgia, including dawson, forsyth, hall, lumpkin and union counties, serving low-income and needy people. Gmfb supplements donated and surplus food and products with the purchase of specific food and grocery items. On a monthly basis approximately 22,000 individuals are served in the gmfb service area through partner agencies. Gmfb is affiliated with the atlanta community food bank which is a member of the feeding america network.
Georgia Mountain Food Bank provides food for many organizations for counties in North Georgia through donations from grocery stores, restaurants, individuals, and organizations. They also grow food. Fantastic opportunity to volunteer and help make a difference.
Thanks to the Georgia Mountain Food Bank our church is able to reach out to many families in our area for a minimum amount of money. Being able to take the funds we have and stretch them farther is an awesome blessing for us all. There are many, many different reasons that people reach out for help. We are glad that we don't have to limit our food distribution to only one type of need due to our lack of funds. The people at the GMFB are awesome to work with and they are very interested in our community and they are always seeking information on how to better serve.
