Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 30, 2013
On December 16, 2013, host Michelle Matthews of Growth Matters on Business RadioX® welcomed to the studio Bill Bolling with the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
Bill Bolling has served as Executive Director of the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) since founding the organization in 1979. In this capacity, he oversees the distribution of more than 45 million pounds of food and grocery products each year through a network of 600 local and regional partner nonprofit organizations that feed the hungry across 29 Georgia counties.
In addition to serving as a state-wide food bank network, the ACFB operates other programs that serve those in Georgia. According to Bolling, "ACFB leads seven distinct projects that reinforce its mission to fight hunger by engaging, educating and empowering our community." Those projects are: Atlanta Prosperity Campaign, Atlanta’s Table, Community Gardens, Hunger 101, Hunger Walk/Run, Kids In Need and Product Rescue Center.
As a charter member of Feeding America, the national network of more than 200 food banks, Bolling was instrumental in the start-up of food banks across the country. He is a frequent speaker on topics related to hunger, poverty, regionalism, affordable housing and public policy reform. His skills in bridging various public sectors have made him a leader in strengthening the community to serve those most in need.
