Rotary Club Presents, Food For Families

(Last Updated On: October 19, 2020)

On Saturday, October 24, from 8 am to 11 am, at City Station at 2115 Maple Street in Carrollton, three local Rotary Clubs will present “Food for Families,” a program to give out boxes of produce, meat, and milk to those who need it. With so many neighbors out of work due to COVID, many will welcome a box or two of food to help get by. The event will be presented by the Carrollton DawnBreakers Rotary Club, Rotary Club of Carrollton, and the Bremen Rotary Club.

Due to the quick timeframe, they need your help to get the word out to friends and family who could use a box of food. There will be 1,152 total boxes to be given away, and each box contains about 30 pounds of produce, meat, and milk provided by the USDA. People will stay in their cars and drive through the parking lot, where volunteers will load boxes into their backseat, trunk, or truck beds. 

No pre-registration required. Boxes available until supply runs out. Questions? Contact Ben Lambert at 770-328-9680 or Emily Wilkins at 770-314-2419
