On a walk through the cavernous Atlanta Community Food Bank, Danah Craft points out what she said is a vital food item: a jar of peanut butter.
For a family relying on food banks, peanut butter is an important source of protein. “This is the kind of food that helps families put a balanced meal on the table,” Craft said.
Craft heads the Georgia Food Bank Association. The group helps distribute millions of pounds of food to the state’s eight regional food banks, but it can’t always rely on what’s donated to meet the needs of Georgia’s poor.
