After fifteen months of a wonderful community endeavor where several nonprofits, churches, businesses and government entities came together for the receipt and distribution of 168,000 boxes of food for Cobb County and beyond, the Cobb Community Food Fleet comes to an end.
Together, we were able to provide our community with 4.4 million pounds of fresh produce and proteins, the equivalent of nearly 3.7 million meals. Our reach and numbers would not have been possible without the support of our participating organizations and partners. Thank you for stepping up for our community.
“We will continue to work to ensure that food remains available when needed and where needed,” said Shari Martin, President and CEO of Cobb Community Foundation. To that end, Noonday Association of Churches, the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Cobb Community Foundation are working on an upcoming event for all nonprofit food providers at which attendees will be presented with census tract-level data on food insecurity to explore opportunities for collaboration.
