KISS 104.1 Community Food Drive

Join KISS 104.1 for the KISS Community Food Drive as we collect donations for Atlanta Community Food Bank at Kroger Marketplace located at 800 Glenwood Avenue SE, Atlanta, GA! We will be there on Saturday, November 13 from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Our community faces one of the highest levels of food insecurity in the nation—meaning that our neighbors often struggle to put food on the table, and that their access to nutritious food is limited by a lack of money and other resources. And the need continues to grow. One-in-seven children in metro Atlanta and north Georgia lives in food insecure households — meaning they don’t know where their next meal will come from. One-in-eight Georgians struggles with hunger in metro Atlanta and north Georgia. These folks include children, seniors, and hardworking families. Each year, an estimated 715,000 (or 1 in 8) people in metro Atlanta and north Georgia turn to Food Bank partner agencies for food. Clients visit agencies an average of 8 times a year.

Your help is needed! Here is a list of items we’ll be collecting:

  • Turkey
  • Ham
  • Whole grain foods
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Brown rice
  • Whole grain cereal
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Whole grain crackers

The Atlanta Community Food Bank has an incredible legacy of mobilizing the food, people, and big ideas needed to create a movement to end hunger across metro Atlanta and north Georgia. The Atlanta Community Food Bank’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency has earned another 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. The 4-star rating is the highest grade awarded by Charity Navigator. Only 3% of Rated Charities Have Received a 4-Star Rating for nine (9) Consecutive Years. For nine consecutive years, the Food Bank has earned 4-star ratings from Charity Navigator.

95% of every dollar donated to the Food Bank goes right back into the community. Supporters can trust that their donations are going to an ethical charity when they invest in one of the Southeast’s largest hunger-relief organizations. Every $1 helps provide up to 4 meals for hungry children, hardworking families & struggling seniors. For every dollar spent, 95 cents (including the value of all donated food) goes directly to services in the community that feed hungry people.

The Food Bank is building a stronger community free of hunger. We need you to help us get there.

Thanks to Kroger for making this event possible.
