You may remember that Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ holiday macaroni and cheese dish became a viral hit on social media, as thousands weighed in with some good-natured ribbing.
In the weeks that followed, Mayor Bottoms decided to harness that momentum to call attention to the reality that not everyone in Metro Atlanta has enough to eat. In fact, hundreds of thousands of people live with the uncertainty of not knowing where their next meal is coming from.
That led to the Mayor’s More Than Mac Campaign Against Hunger.
With the help of Kroger grocery stores, the campaign has raised tens of thousands of dollars to help the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Customers can roundup their purchases to the nearest dollar or simply make a donation to benefit the Food Bank.
Ensuring all our residents have enough to eat is central to Mayor Bottom’s One Atlanta principle – that no one in our city gets left behind.
