Nearly 2 in 10 households in Atlanta, GA are experiencing food insecurity

Food insecurity is linked with numerous health conditions including diabetes, hypertension, and depression.

More than half a million children in Georgia don’t have consistent access to enough nutritious food.

36% of food insecure Georgians are above the federal poverty line and are therefore ineligible for food assistance programs.


RLC Atlanta bridges the gap between food excess and insecurity

RLC Atlanta works with local restaurants, caterers, and film sets to rescue leftover food.

We work with local human service agencies to address food needs.

Atlanta focuses food donations toward shelters for children and other at risk individuals.
