CSR – Feeding Hope

At SITE Southeast, we believe in the power of collective action to create positive change. We are kicking off 2024 by collecting food items for the Atlanta Community Food Bank, whose mission is to end hunger in Atlanta.

Ready to lend a helping hand? One simple yet impactful way to contribute to the Food Drive is by bringing canned food. Canned goods are convenient, have a longer shelf life, and can make a significant difference in providing essential nutrition to those in need.

A table will be set-up near registration at our Kick Off event for drop off of any of the following donations:

  • Canned Fruit and Vegetables
  • Canned Tuna, Chicken or Salmon in Water
  • Canned or Dried Beans, Peas or Lentils (low sodium if canned)
  • Whole Grain Pasta and Flour
  • Whole Grain Cereal
  • Brown Rice, Barley, Quinoa
  • Paper Products
  • Diapers
  • Toiletries

Monetary donations can be made here.

For members who are outside of the Atlanta area and wish to participate in our food drive, please consider a donation to the World Central Kitchen.
