The facts about hunger in Georgia are simply staggering: 700,000 children live in food-insecure households; 18% of Georgians—including 1 in 10 senior citizens—live in poverty, up 16.5% since 2009; and 59,000 of our citizens receive assistance every week from the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB).
With demand up and the economy down, it’s no surprise that the needs of the ACFB are at an all-time high. And we want to help. That’s why we always participate, along with over 13,000 other concerned people, in the ACFB’s Hunger Walk/Run. This annual event helps to raise over $500,000 every year to fight hunger in Georgia.
And, it’s no surprise that there’s a little healthy competition in our industry. With this in mind, we form a team for each of our restaurants, catering company and corporate office to see who can raise the most money toward our goal of $25,000. So, if you have a favorite spot or a friend or family member who works for Fifth Group Restaurants, show them your support by making a donation today.
How you ask? That’s the easy part: Join us for lunch, brunch or dinner at any of our six restaurants before March 11 and make a tax-deductible donation on your check, or click the team you’d like to support below and make your donation online. It’s that simple.
Remember, walk to end hunger. Not away from it. Thank you!
