Athens Eats Together

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. It is estimated that the Athens Eats Together program will provide over 690,000 meals to 10,000 Athenians.
