On Thursday, November 10th North Atlanta Rotarians, family members and friends volunteered at the Atlanta Food Bank sorting and packing food for those in need.  Atlanta Food Bank serves the homeless and working poor through some 800 partner agencies serving 29 Georgia Counties in the Greater Atlanta area.

It is estimated that 1 in 4 Georgia kids live in food insecure households where from day to day there is uncertainty regarding the source of their next meal.  An estimated 755,400 people in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia are served by the Atlanta Food Bank partner agencies.  Many of those in need are Veterans and their families.  Several of our volunteer Rotarians are Veterans as well. On the eve of Veteran's Day 2016 we said, "Thank you!" to all Veterans, and we participated in this evening of service in their honor.



...and then a time for Fellowship and nourishment!
