Dekalb County will host drive-thru food distribution events this week, at five different locations.
The events take place on Saturday, July 24th and are exclusively for Dekalb residents.
This time, the FREE food boxes feature back-to-school items, including packages of single-serving grits, cereal, and juice boxes. They will also contain a 20-pound box of Georgia-grown fruit and vegetables, and a 10-pound package of chicken.
Additionally, three of the locations will offer FREE Covid-19 vaccinations on a voluntary basis to anyone over the age of 12. See the details below.
You are NOT required to receive a vaccine in order to receive food.
These are drive-thru events and you won’t need to get out of your car.
The county will hand out a total of 3,500 pre-packaged boxes of food, according to a press release.
If you know of someone who could use this information, please share it!
