Jamestown recently announced a partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to help combat food insecurity in Atlanta.
The global real estate investment and management firm behind Ponce City Market, Southern Dairies, Buckhead Village and Westside Provisions District began partnering Dec. 14 with the food bank, known as one of the largest hunger relief programs in the nation. In addition to donating more than $250,000 through its charitable foundation, Jamestown partnered with the food bank to launch a weeklong food drive to help combat food insecurity in Atlanta.
Jamestown aims to provide over one million meals and volunteer support for the holidays. Starting the week of Dec. 14, Jamestown began inviting the community to donate throughout the holiday season. The public was encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donation stations at Ponce City Market and Southern Dairies, located across from Ponce City Market. Visitors also could scan QR codes displayed throughout the properties to contribute.
“One of the greatest needs in our community is helping local families tackle food insecurity,” says Matt Bronfman, CEO of Jamestown. “The Atlanta Community Food Bank has been working tirelessly these last few months to make sure Georgians have good, nutritious meals on their tables during the holiday season. Jamestown is proud to be a partner in their efforts, and we look forward to joining the extended Ponce City Market neighborhood in coming together in the last few weeks of 2020 to help this incredible organization make an even bigger impact.”
On top of financial support for the food bank’s mobile pantry program and property activations, Jamestown has arranged a series of volunteer days next year to further support the nonprofit.
