Midwest Food Bank of Georgia
After watching multiple natural disasters strike the southeast and seeing the growing need for food and supplies, Midwest Food Bank decided to consider a location in that region. The Peachtree City, Georgia location was established in 2011 with nine agency partners who received food for distribution to local community members in need.
Since opening our doors, we have grown to serve over 320 agency partners from our location, including 30 from a satellite distribution in Tennessee. These agencies are located in over 52 counties spanning six states: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Based upon demand, an 8000 square foot facility expansion took place in 2017. Incredible volunteers make it possible for us to fight hunger in this area and readily provide disaster relief.
Every month, we have dedicated eight days for distribution or “load-out.” During load-out days, agency partners schedule a time slot to come to pick up their share of food and additional products that may be available. Partners then return to their communities to distribute the food and products to those in need. 30 of Midwest Food Bank Georgia's partner agencies are served from a remote monthly distribution in Harristown, TN.
Over the years, Midwest Food Bank has become partners with The Salvation Army to assist with disaster relief throughout the country. This program is especially close to the hearts of Peachtree City residents and volunteers, who are so close to the devastation of hurricanes that have hit the southeast region. In the spirit of southern hospitality and kindness, we have joined together and have the privilege of making a difference. We appreciate all those who donate, volunteer and support this important work.
Volunteers are always welcome, but our distribution days are the busiest. View our distribution calendar by clicking below.
