About

Gleaning Day at The Georgia World Congress Center!

Register on our Food Bank Volunteer Hub: http://acfb.volunteerhub.com/Events/Event/Summary.aspx?EventID=3589220

Ah, there’s nothing like a good 'ole fashioned glean. This age-old method of gathering food left in the fields after a bountiful harvest has yielded critical food supplies for generations.

Join your Atlanta Community Food Bank as we put a modern twist into this ancient practice with a special Trade Show scavenger hunt! Thanks to our friends from the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS), we have an incredible opportunity to receive a very large-scale food and product donation, essentially all the remaining goods from this huge national conference.

Over 100 volunteers are needed to help:

  • Collect food and product from across the Georgia World Congress Center.
  • Help palletize donations and prepare for truck load-out.
  • Anticipating over 100,000 lbs of food to fill 1-12 truckloads!

Physical Requirements:

  • Ability to lift 40 lbs, chest high
  • Age 18 and older only
  • Closed-toe shoes must be worn
