Volunteer

Join us for our weekly food distribution efforts to keep our vulnerable neighbors well. Each Friday, we put another 2,000-3,000 pounds of quality food support into the community, and more hands makes for a lighter load as we unload, sort, box, and carry food from the center to neighbor’s vehicles!

We also have opportunities to support our work with our awesome kids, particularly through our cycling, gardening, and after-school tutoring offerings!

Sponsor a Week of Food Distribution

Each week of food distribution puts more than 2,000 meals into the community with a value between $6,000 – $7,500. For a sponsorship of $250, your household or business can support one week of this effort and sustain our impact. We also love to host groups of volunteers from organizations. Talent, time, and treasure – it takes all three!

Host a Field Trip

One of the cornerstones of our program is providing exposure and experiential learning opportunities for our kids and teens. Let us know if you have an opportunity to host or provide an opportunity for our kids (examples include sporting events, career days, tours of cultural centers, and more)!

Organize an Event or Fundraiser

We have a long history of committed and caring neighbors embodying the grassroots spirit of EAKC through hosting birthday fundraisers, organizing rides with our kids and community, leading toy and supply drives for our kids, and creating day of service opportunities. If you have an idea, and you want to work directly with our staff to make it happen, let us know!

Lend your Talent

EAKC was built by the hard work from so many East Atlanta neighbors who have given freely of their time and talent over the years. If you have a skill that you would like to lend – whether it’s social media marketing, building raised beds in the garden, leading culinary arts demonstrations, supporting building projects in the center, or anything else you can think of, we would love to hear from you!
