Local food banks prepare for summer surge

by The 100 Companies

As we learn to live post-pandemic, reduced government food assistance has resulted in many Georgia families turning to food banks and nonprofits for meals, which are soon expecting higher demands once children are on summer break.

Since the pandemic ended, new food hardships have fallen on families, such as reduced federal aid and inflation. From December 2021 through December 2022, food prices saw the greatest increase in decades, an Urban Institute study found.

The state is giving $38 million to Atlanta Community Food Bank, America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia and Georgia Mountain Food Bank to help alleviate upcoming demand.
