The next Food Pantry Forum, co-hosted by United Way of Greater Atlanta and the Regional Council of Churches, is Thursday, May 23 from 2 -3:30 p.m. It will take place at the offices of United Way of Greater Atlanta, 40 Courtland Street, Atlanta 30303, 3rd floor. The topic will be on the “Food First” pantry model.
The Atlanta Community Food Bank, Community Assistance Center, and Emmaus House have partnered to pilot a "Food First" pantry which increases access to nutritious food for clients in order to promote longer term food security and economic stability. Tamara Carrera (CAC) and Alexis Weaver (ACFB) will share the preliminary promising findings of this innovative framework and discuss practical strategies for transitioning to the client choice, market-style pantry, which is foundational to the Food First approach.
We will also have opportunity for networking and discussion. We look forward to seeing you there. To R.s.v.p., click here.
