The Atlanta Community Food Bank works to end hunger across metro Atlanta and north Georgia with the food, people, and big ideas needed to make sure all members of our community have access to enough nourishment to live a healthy and productive life.
We all need nutritious food to live the lives we imagine. Yet far too many people in our own community experience hunger every day, including children, seniors, and working families.
Through more than 600 nonprofit partners, we help more than 715,000 people get healthy food every year. Our goal is that, all hungry people in our service area will have access to the nutritious meals they need when they need them. It takes the power of our whole community to make that possible.

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Atlanta Community Food Bank collects, warehouses and distributes food to front-line organizations like food pantries and soup kitchens.
Impact Statement
$2 provides a meal to a person in need.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of food distribution programs are based on the cost of a meal relative to the cost that a food-secure person incurs to buy a meal in that county. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they are less than 75% the cost of a meal and a score of 75 if they are less than 125%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of Atlanta Community Food Bank.
Data Source
Outcome data collected during the program. Atlanta Community Food Bank publicly reports the amount of food it provides.
Method for Attributing Outcomes
We assume that the distribution of a meal from one nonprofit's food distribution program does not diminish the amount of food distributed by any other (neighboring) food distribution program. This “counterfactual” assumption about the amount of food distributed in the absence of Atlanta Community Food Bank’s food distribution program implies that the benefit of a meal to a beneficiary in need constitutes a net gain; the gain is not offset by reductions in food provided to other beneficiaries in need. We therefore set the counterfactual to zero.
