Helping Fight Hunger
Join us for our 12th annual Helping Fight Hunger initiative, as we all rally together to collect as many nonperishable food items as possible during the month of October. A food bank in every town with an Ameris Bank location will receive the donation of goods collected at their local Ameris Bank office.
Supporting our local food banks
When our neighbors and communities are food insecure, nearly every aspect of life, even beyond the immediate and obvious effects on physical health, is impacted. It makes it difficult for children to concentrate in school, and for adults to maintain adequate job performance. By helping to reduce food insecurity across the communities we serve, we are supporting job and educational success, which supports our neighbors in their ability to pay bills, save and plan for the future – all supporting their financial peace of mind.
Helping Fight Hunger is a company-wide project uniting all banking locations, support departments, community boards, customers and members of our community to one common cause: to collect as many nonperishable food items as possible during the month of October. Our collective efforts allow for a food bank in every town with an Ameris Bank location to receive the donation of goods collected at their local Ameris Bank office.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
During the month of October, donate nonperishable food items by dropping them off in the collection box located inside every Ameris Bank location and at local businesses that are supporting the effort.
If your business, religious organization, or school is interested in displaying a Helping Fight Hunger collection box, please contact your local Ameris Bank location. The Ameris Bank team will support you in your collection efforts.

Helping Fight Hunger Through the Years – Since 2010
Food shortage and food insecurity are rising. In fact, recent statics show that the percentage of households with food insecurity is significantly higher in the states within our Southeastern footprint. In order to help and give back to our communities, Ameris Bank launched Helping Fight Hunger, a company-wide food drive in 2010. Each year our donation and collection efforts continue to exceed expectations. Since 2010, over 9 million food items have been collected and over $900,000 donated to support food banks throughout our communities.
