Atlanta Food Not Bombs is run entirely by volunteers. We need your help! You don’t need any special skills, everyone can be useful somehow. Here are some ways to volunteer your time.
Volunteers gather to sort and prepare food to distribute several times each week: Sundays and Tuesdays at The Teardown, a community house at 80 Mayson Ave NE, Atlanta GA. Help is always needed. Get in touch, or just show up!
We distribute food Sundays at 1PM near The Teardown, Tuesdays at 12PM at Park 35 Apartments in Decatur, and 1PM at South Bend Commons in Lakewood. Feel free to come help distribute, or just come to socialize with everyone who has gathered to get what they need. Music, art and festivity is encouraged!
After each distribution, we return to 80 Mayson Ave to clean up. Help is especially needed here breaking down boxes, packing up leftovers, etc.
Generous donors often offer food, clothes, and other resources…but it’s a lot of work to move it all around! If you can volunteer to be available to occasionally pick up donations and transport them to a storage location, please get in touch. Reliability is mandatory, and access to a vehicle is a plus.
Ask your local grocery store, farmer’s market, restaurant, etc what they do with their excess food. Will they donate it to Food Not Bombs?
Talk to your friends, co-workers, students, congregation, etc about volunteering. Spread the word using our outreach materials.
