The Food Bank is one of Atlanta’s most trusted and beloved nonprofits. We have a tremendous team, a dedicated and committed board, an incredible network of partners, and tens of thousands of donors and volunteers who care deeply about our work. Bill Bolling has been an incredible leader, and the team and I will build on his legacy by continuing to work relentlessly to ensure all people in our region have access to the food they need for healthy, productive lives," said Waide.
