Athens Eats Together

ACCA is extending the Athens Eats Together program with the expectation of a funding extension from the Athens-Clarke County Government. Although we do not anticipate too much disruption as we restock our food supplies, please be aware that some food options may be unavailable for the next week. We are grateful to our local government for their continued support of this program and we are honored to be able to continue to serve our community in this way!

Athens Eats Together is a county-wide initiative created to provide emergency food relief to any Clarke-County resident, regardless of age,  facing food insecurities due to COVID-19. Funded by the Athens-Clarke County, this collaborative effort is being led by the Athens Community Council on Aging and brings together expertise and resources from the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, Epting Events, the Athens Farmers Market, and Family Connection – Communities in Schools of Athens.
