West Georgia Disaster Relief Team Coordinates Local Food Distribution

In coordination with relief partners, the West Georgia Disaster Relief Team met Saturday morning and finalized efforts to coordinate the local efforts for food distribution to families.  This relief is primarily for the families with children, who as a result of schools being cancelled, will not have access to breakfast and lunch meals while schools are suspended for the coronavirus pandemic.  

The following is a multi-partner program to address the immediate needs. More plans and programs will be put into place as the needs change and/or the partners identify additional resources and distribution outlets. 

Sunday, March 15, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Carroll County Performing Arts Center, located at 775 Old Newnan Road in Carrollton, will be accepting ready-to-eat nonperishable foods that will be distributed in Carroll and Haralson counties. Carroll County Schools states, “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with community volunteers to positively change lives!”

Carroll County Schools will also be running normal bus routes daily and giving out food to families from the bus.  

Community Christian Council located at 734 Bowdon Street in Tallapoosa is extending hours and increasing the number served on Monday night. Community Christian Council is also accepting donations of ready to eat, prepackaged foods such as pop tarts, ramen noodles, snack cakes, mac & cheese, peanut butter and jelly, canned goods that can be heated in a microwave and monetary donations.  Donations can be dropped off at the Community Christian Council in Tallapoosa from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
