Join us on Sunday, March 8th at Temple Emanu-El as we create care packages for “Food Deserts” across the metro-Atlanta area. Click here to register for this event.
“Food deserts are defined as low-income communities lacking a grocery store in a one-mile radius from its neighborhood. In 2017, 36 percent of Atlanta was classified as a food desert, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A quarter of Atlanta residents have to travel more than a half-mile to get fresh fruits and vegetables.”
