Primerica Meets Emergency Food Shortage Need with $100,000 Donation

In response to increased food shortages in greater Atlanta, The Primerica Foundation has made a $100,000 donation to the Atlanta Community Food Bank to support the growing number of families impacted by COVID-19. “Without question, there are a lot of people who are experiencing food insecurity for the first time,” Kyle Waide, President and CEO of the Atlanta Community Food Bank, said.

Primerica’s funding will be used to purchase food storage equipment and refrigeration for fresh produce and perishables, as well as for additional food purchases in the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s emergency network.

“We estimate that we will be able to purchase roughly 30,000 pounds of food that could help feed up to 25,000 people, depending on the food item and quantity,” said Sarah Fonder-Kristy, Chief Development Officer for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

The Atlanta Community Food Bank works directly with area food banks to distribute food to those who need it in the greater Atlanta area.
