A week after distributing 38,600 pounds of food to federal employees, The Atlanta Community Food Bank is set for another food drive in DeKalb County.
DeKalb Commissioner Kathie Gannon has sponsored the food drive for the past 10 years in conjunction with other DeKalb officials, according to a news release on the drive. The food drive will run from Tuesday to March 8.
Last year, the county collected 3,099 pounds of food and $535 in online donations for the food bank. The donations created 4, 723 meals.
DeKalb residents may donate food at the Manuel J. Maloof Administration Building on 1300 Commerce Drive in Decatur, the DeKalb Tax Commissioner’s Office on 4380 Memorial Drive in Decatur or any DeKalb library or senior center.
Residents are also urged to make online monetary donations here.
