      Cobb Community Foundation Resources

      Cobb Community Foundation (CCF) has taken a number of steps to support our business community and non-profit agencies serving families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have quickly updated online community resources, created funds to provide area non-profits with much-needed support, and mobilized status calls to help support non-profit collaboration to better serve Cobb’s urgent community needs.

      CCF COVID-19 Response:

      • Map of Community Support Services: An easy to search online resource to quickly locate community services, such as food pantries. Individuals can access up-to-date information from Cobb non-profits at www.CobbCommunityConnection.org.
      • Cobb COVID-19 Community Response Fund: Provided grants to non-profits who assist Cobb Residents with food, prescriptions and healthcare, childcare and basic needs. Learn more.
      • Operation Meal Plan Fund: Created by the Cobb Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Center for Family Resources, Cobb Community Foundation, and Cobb County non-profits, provide food to those in need, helped our restaurants keep their workers employed, and provided a vehicle for citizens to help. Learn more.

      “Cobb County is home to a strong community of individuals who support each other, our local businesses, non-profit organizations, and our families in need,” stated Shari Martin, President and CEO of Cobb Community Foundation. “Especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic, I know that as a community foundation, it’s our role to build and deploy resources to non-profits to help support our community. Together we can and together we did make a difference.”

      Food Bank Locations

      The Atlanta Food Bank has a new way of finding food banks. Individuals can text "findfood" to +1 888-976-2232. Enter zip code and they will text a food bank list in their area. If there is food bank in the area they will provide the closet location as well.
