Food Bank's Hunger Bowl 2023 Underway where each dollar buys three meals
The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia’s Hunger Bowl 2023 is underway; this year’s theme is Hunker Down Against Hunger. The annual event is a food and fund drive for the facility. Erin Barger is President and CEO of the facility.
She says the food bank is able to turn each dollar it receives into three meals, but contributions of traditional food items are also welcome.
The foodbank serves 14 counties in northeast Georgia. Kelly Klein is the Director of Development at the agency. She says more than 65,000 people in the area are at risk of food insecurity. In Clarke County alone, approximately 17,000 people are receiving SNAP benefits.
Hunger Bowl runs through November 3rd.
