Food drives are great because they enable us to offer more variety - and more food - to our guests each week!

*PLEASE NOTE: While many of our contributors may be in the habit of making donations at their place of worship, donations may be delivered directly to the Food Pantry at McIver Hall behind Druid Hills Presbyterian Church (1026 Ponce de Leon Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30306, entrance on St. Charles Ave). Please deliver weekdays during working hours or on Saturday mornings before 10 a.m. The need is great and donations are welcome any time!
Food Co-op Needs
At our Intown Food Co-operatives, we work with our neighbors at two low-income high-rises to increase food security and enrich community life. The Co-ops are one part food security, one part empowerment. Co-op members work together to choose their own food and run their own meetings, and all members volunteer their time and talents to build a stronger community.
In 2014, we are providing 84 Co-op members with food, thanks to the generous financial contributions from individuals, businesses, congregations, and foundations.
$150 will provide one Food Co-op member with food for one year. This is $12.50 a month or $2.89 a week for a year. Please help keep our neighbors from facing food insecurity.
In-kind items needed
- Grocery bags: either clean, used bags or a box of new bags
- Coupons for groceries, hygiene products, cleaning products, and household items
Special thanks to Druid Hills Presbyterian Church, Morningside Presbyterian Church, and Druid Hills Baptist Church, volunteer sponsors of our Co-ops.
