Over 8,000 pounds of food will be delivered to Metro Atlanta
neighborhoods by the Central Outreach and Advocacy Center (the OAC) on
Saturday, June 13, 2009. Through a special one-time grant from the
United Way's Critical Needs Campaign, the Center will make emergency
groceries available at 4 locations in communities designated as being
below the poverty level. Volunteers are needed to staff each of the 4
sites. Delivery sites will be open from 10 am to 1 pm and recipients
must provide proof of housing, such as a rent receipt, mortgage
statement, utility bill, or lease. The food, which includes canned
fruit, vegetables and soup, as well as rice and pasta, will be available
in 30 pound boxes. Families consisting of 1-3 people will be eligible to
receive one box; 2 boxes for families of 4 or more. All too often
families are faced with the dilemma of maintaining a roof over their
heads or purchasing food. Through this program, the OAC hopes to ease
this burden by providing critically needed food to those most affected
by the recession. Volunteer registration is available at Central OAC
