In Grove Park, a neighborhood just west of Bankhead, a familiar story is playing out. The first chapter might begin in the 1950s, when black Atlantans first started moving to the neighborhood and white residents tried various tactics—including bombing one black woman’s home—to keep them out.
John Lewis, Michelle Nunn, Rodney Bullard, Warrick Dunn, Ann Wilson Cramer, and Gracelyn Leath—we asked prominent Atlantans seven questions about what drives them to volunteer. Here’s why they give their time—and where you can give yours.
Now that the storms have passed, it's time to look at how to help those impacted most by the destruction of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey.
Starting this Friday, the West End MARTA station will be home to a pop-up farmstand, showcasing produce from urban farms in Southwest Atlanta. The stand, which will operate every Friday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. until early October, is a pilot program that MARTA hopes to duplicate across its other 37 stations in Atlanta. The market will also double the value of SNAP EBT dollars for shoppers with food stamps.

For the last fifteen years, top chefs around Atlanta have been donating their time and money (in the form of ingredients) to help feed the hungry. See, the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) has a partnership with the Cook’s Warehouse, and every month—sometimes multiple times a month—a chef is invited to lead a cooking demonstration, workshop, and/or tasting at one of the four Cook’s Warehouse locations around the city. Everyone is invited, and all proceeds benefit the ACFB.
The rules are simple. You can spend only the equivalent of your state’s average weekly SNAP allowance, which at the time in Georgia was $33.98. You can’t accept any outside food or eat restaurant meals, and, except for condiments, can’t use anything already in your pantry or refrigerator.
