Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 16, 2013—To help support local families facing a hunger crisis and in need of emergency food support, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Downtown Atlanta is introducing the Movers for Meals food drive to stock up the Buckhead Christian Ministry Food Pantry in preparation for the holidays.
According to Atlanta Community Food Bank, more than one of every four Georgia children lives in a food insecure household, while 17% of households experienced low food security from 2009-2011. Food security is defined as access to enough food for an active, healthy life.
The Downtown Atlanta TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, located at 1017 Collier Rd. NW, is collecting donations for the Buckhead Christian Ministry Food Pantry by partnering with local schools and organizations throughout the community, including Orvis, Childcare Network, Cross Creek Golf Club and Open Arms Child Development Center.
The Orvis Atlanta store, located in Buckhead at 3275 Peachtree Rd NE, is serving as a collection site for Movers for Meals and is offering a $25 coupon off a $50 (or more) purchase to thank those who bring in donations to benefit the Buckhead Chrisitan Ministry Food Pantry. The coupon will be given away through Nov. 22 and will expire on Dec. 31, 2013.
Movers for Meals will run through Nov. 22 — the Friday before Thanksgiving. Anyone interested in supporting the food drive can drop off canned goods and non-perishable food items at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Downtown Atlanta. The franchise is open Monday – Saturday.
Organizations interested in supporting Movers for Meals as a collection site will be supplied with free donation boxes and donation delivery to the Buckhead Christian Ministry Food Pantry. To participate in the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Movers for Meals food drive, contact Paige Fagan at 616-233-0500 or email@example.com.
