DeKalb residents have until March 8 to donate food to the annual food drive sponsored by Super District Commissioner Kathie Gannon and other county officials.

The drive, which is in its 10th year, has been underway since Feb. 12. It benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

This year’s co-sponsors are  District Attorney Sherry Boston, Solicitor-General Donna Coleman-Stribling, Clerk of Superior Court Debra DeBerry and Tax Commissioner Irvin Johnson. DeKalb libraries and senior centers also are partnering with the effort.

 Citizens can drop off non-perishable donations at the following locations:

  • Maloof Administrative Building, 1300 Commerce Drive, Decatur, GA 30030
  • Tax Commissioner’s office, 4380 Memorial Drive, Decatur, GA 30032
  • Any DeKalb County library
  • Any DeKalb County senior center

Employees who work in the county’s court tower can make donations at any of the participating co-sponsors offices.

Cash donations can be made at www.dekalbcountyga.gov and clicking on the food drive banner picture, or at http://engage.acfb.org/goto/DekalbFoodDrive2019 which is also available on all of the co-sponsors web and Facebook pages.

Last year, the drive collected 3,099 pounds of food and $535 in online donations which together created 4,723 meals for people in need.
