North Fulton residents have been stopping by First Citizens Bank on Haynes Bridge Road to drop off food in the Summer Food Drive, but organizers say there's still more need.
Summer donations are low because so many people are on vacation, according to Kendra Plotkin of the chamber, who organized the food drive. The lack of subsidized lunches over the summer because school is out of session makes the need great for the area's children in poorer homes..
To make sure the most need is met, the chamber and North Fulton Community Charities, the beneficiary of the food drive, identified the top six most immediate needs:
- Pasta Sauce (no pasta)
- Canned Beans (but no green beans)
- Ramen Noodles
- Canned Fruit
- Mac & Cheese
That might get you hungry, but not to worry. Charlie Feehan has his Shane's Rib Shack tent out there with pork, chicken and chicken tenders, plus tea and lemonade. Bring some food and get some food. If you didn't make it to the grocery store, just bring some cash for a donation and he'll let you have some food. (And if you don't have cash, the First Citizens Bank has an ATM.)
