The mission of The King’s Table Food Ministry is to support families in the community by eliminating hunger through the distribution of free, supplementary food items. There are no income or household requirements to receive assistance.

DECATUR, Ga.—As the year winds down, the fight against food insecurity continues as DeKalb County Government hosts its monthly food distribution event ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Since May 2020, DeKalb County has provided fruit, vegetables, and protein to over 20,000 DeKalb County families.

Dekalb County  will host three drive-through food distribution events during which 2,500 DeKalb residents will receive one 20-pound box of fruit and vegetables and a ham or turkey.
Beginning at 10 a.m., COVID-19 Care Baskets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, at three locations:
• Buck Godfrey Stadium, 2817 Clifton Springs Rd., Decatur, GA 30034 • James R. Hallford Stadium, 3789 Memorial College Ave., Clarkston, GA 30021 • New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, 6400 Woodrow Rd., Stonecrest, GA 30038
