The Atlanta Community Food Bank is moving from the city in its name to one slightly further south in Fulton County.
The food distribution nonprofit will relocate from its longtime home on Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard to a new campus in East Point. The move is being made in order to meet a goal to “close the meal gap and end hunger in metro Atlanta and North Georgia communities by 2025,” a press release announced Tuesday.
Construction is expected to begin early next year, and may be completed by spring 2020. The new facility will offer a 75 percent increase in total space, the statement said.
