2018 Food `n Fun Challenge Winners!
Thirty-two teams from throughout the Sandy Springs and Dunwoody communities collected 56,772 pounds of food in CAC’s 2018 Food `n Fun Challenge!
Food from the Challenge will stock the CAC Food Pantry to provide for local families in need and eliminate child huger this coming summer. In 2017 CAC distributed about 55,000 pounds of food a month to about 500-800 families making 1,200 visits a month to the pantry. While requests for food assistance typically increase during the summer, donations to the food pantry typically decline. During the summer months, families living on tight budgets face additional financial stress as food costs increase when children are home for school vacation and not receiving free lunches at school. Food donations from the Food `n Fun Challenge help ensure families can get the food they need during the summer.
Taking the Challenge this year were businesses, schools, congregations, civic groups, neighborhoods and city departments. Winners were announced on May 1, at CAC’s Building Dedication & Open House event. – View the Food `n Fun photo gallery! –
