Food Support in Your Community

Food Support in Your Community
April 2, 2020 BGCMA

With schools out, Clubs closed, and certain food items difficult to find, we know that finding nutritious food for your family is important. The health and safety of our members, our staff, and the community is our #1 priority.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta has pulled together a list of food support in your community.

Please check your school system’s social media for real-time updates.


Atlanta Community Food Bank has created a new “Text for Help” feature that will identify the three closest food pantries to you when you text “findfood” (no spaces) or “comida” (Spanish) to 888-976-2232. Texters will be prompted to give their zip code.


 

Keep Kids Engaged 

Even though school is closed, there is plenty kids can do to keep their mind and body active and engaged.

We will be updating daily with new games and interactive lessons so check back regularly.

Check out our list of resources.

Family Services

From financial to housing assistance to emotional support and healthcare, we are here for you.

Community partners across the state are stepping up. Check out our list of resources to support you and your family.


 

Homework Help

With schools out and Clubs clubs closed, we understand many parents may be struggling to help kids stay on track with schoolwork. At Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, we know the key to success starts with a solid education.

Check back for regular updates of resources to help the kid in your life stay engaged and on track during this time.


 

Club Closures 

We follow the operating schedules of County/City district schools so if your County/City district school has a closure, your local Club will be closed as well.

Check out our list of closures.


 

Help Us Continue to Serve our Mission

As Atlanta’s kids and families face challenges with food insecurity, financial instability, mental health, social distancing and homeschool, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta has stepped up to fill the gap. We need your support – now more than ever.
