The third annual Windward Food Drive supporting North Fulton Community Charities is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8.
The organizers of the drive say every September food supplies at the NFCC food pantry run dangerously low, as donations during the summer months run well below average.
Food donated by Windward for the past two years – more than 4.5 tons of it – has provided a boost to their inventories. On an average day, NFCC distributes food to 175-200 families.
NFCC is the primary charity providing this kind of aid to those in need in North Fulton.
