Why canned goods?
Nearly 800,000 people in metro Atlanta and North Georgia are food insecure. One in four children in metro Atlanta lives in a home that’s food insecure. Parents struggle to feed their families, and rely on the help of the Salvation Army’s food pantry to get by. 11Alive and the Salvation Army want to help decrease those numbers and change lives in our community.
Last year, we collected nearly 80,000 canned and non-perishable food items during this event. There’s still so much work to do to meet the need this year. Thank you for your donations and for Doing The Most Good!
