As part of NBA All-Star 2021 and the NBA’s collective support for communities of color, the NBA, in partnership with the Atlanta Hawks, City of Atlanta, Kaiser Permanente, and Goodr created 16 full-service grocery pop-ups in communities across metro Atlanta on Saturday, March 6, 2021.
In the span of two weeks, Goodr and the NBA came together to plan and successfully execute 16 pop-up grocery stores across 16 locations in one day.
Recipients received fresh produce, shelf-stable items, meats and seafood, milk and non-dairy alternatives, bread, and other beverages. Throughout the combined effort, 3,400 families across 16 locations received free groceries.

We first partnered with Goodr in March 2021 to execute 16 pop-up grocery stores in one day for the 2021 NBA All-Star Weekend. During that weekend, we served over 3000 families providing over 1million meals.Annie Horn
