Want to Partner with Middle Georgia Community Food Bank?

The primary way the Food Bank distributes its food is by working in partnership with four types of partner agencies:

Food Pantries

Food Pantries are community-based programs (non-profits and/or churches) that collect and store food and household products for distribution to individuals and households who are food insecure.

Soup Kitchens

Soup Kitchens are local non-profit organizations that provide prepared meals to individuals in need at designated times and places.

Residential

Residential programs are non-profit organizations that house displaced, low-income individuals and provide them with food.

Backpack Programs

Backpack Programs provide low-income students with a bag of nutritionally balanced food during the school year, and during school breaks. Each child receives an average of 10 pounds of food each week, all purchased to ensure the highest nutrition quality.
