“Beyond the immediate impact of providing food, we are also creating a platform that allows all of us to get engaged in solving this problem.”
– Kyle Waide, President & CEO, Atlanta Community Food Bank
In 2018, iVision joined a network of corporations in taking the 1% Pledge: we committed to giving back 1% of our time and profits to help improve our local communities. For our inaugural event, iVision chose to partner with the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB).
Over two days, over 80 employees participated in the event, inspecting, sorting, and packaging donations at the ACFB warehouse in downtown Atlanta. The ACFB serves over 600 partners across 29 counties in metro Atlanta and North Georgia. On average, over 750,000 people benefit from the work done at the ACFB. iVision was proud to partake in the event to help eliminate hunger throughout North Georgia.
The iVision Impact
During the two-day event, iVision:
- Had 80 volunteers
- Packaged over 31,000 pounds of food
- Provided over 22,000 meals
- Logged almost 300 volunteer hours
