As we are easing up on stay-at-home orders and are opening up
more and more of our businesses in Georgia, we are still not in the clear. One of the largest issues people are facing
is food insecurity. Now that school is
officially out, food programs executed through our schools have for the most
part ended and it is leaving some families with an extra burden of trying to
figure out how to provide nutritious meals for their families. Below is a list of some local food pantries
and co-ops. If you are in a position to
help, PLEASE DO! Donate and volunteer at
these organizations. Let us continue to
help our community!
