Food Drive - Drop off items here in Decatur at the Maloof Bldg.

DeKalb County Commissioner Kathie Gannon is offering a challenge to District 6 constituents to “spread the love” during February by making non-perishable food item and/or monetary donations to benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Decatur Cooperative Ministries.

Food collection barrels will be placed in the lobbies of the Maloof Building (1300 Commerce Drive) and 330 Ponce de Leon Ave during the month of February. The most needed food items currently are: canned tuna, beans, soups, stews, fruit and vegetables; pastas, macaroni and cheese dinners, whole grain and low sugar cereals.

Online donations can be made directly to the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s secure site, just
visit my website,, click on constituent information, then news to access the link. The food bank can leverage over $8 in food and services for every $1 donation.

If you have questions, please contact Rita Morgan at 404-371-6353 or
