Event: Helping Families Put Food on the Table with a Georgia Work Credit

Join the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute for a special Hunger Action Month Event to explore a state policy that can help thousands of Georgia families keep food on the table. The Georgia Work Credit is a bottom-up tax cut that allows working families to keep more of what they earn, so they can afford basic necessities and make important investments for the future. Register today for the lunch event on Wednesday, September 4th in Atlanta and learn how you can help to support this important policy that will improve food security for hardworking Georgia families.

  • Learn how a Georgia Work Credit (a State Earned Income Tax Credit) can strengthen the communities we serve and support families statewide.
  • Hear from James Jimenez, Executive Director of New Mexico Voices for Children, about the benefits which resulted from New Mexico’s work credit and how the state coalition succeeded in strengthening the policy earlier this year. 
  • Learn about proposals to enact a Georgia Work Credit, how the credit would help families put food on the table and how you can support this important policy.
  • Get the information you need to take action and raise awareness!
