Atlanta Community Food Bank
Atlanta, GA – On a continual basis Woodforest National Bank employees perform a multitude of fundraising events benefitting the Woodforest Charitable Foundation.  Both Woodforest National Bank and Woodforest Charitable Foundation are committed to making a positive impact in the communities in which Woodforest serves. This partnership benefits the community and organizations such as Atlanta Community Food Bank, which recently received a $850 donation, from the Woodforest Charitable Foundation.

Atlanta Community Food Bank serves 29 counties and works with over 600 non-profit community-based partners to distribute 7,500,000 pounds of food annually. Their mission is to fight hunger by engaging, educating and empowering their community.
