In honor of Father’s Day, DeKalb County will distribute 5,000 boxes of fresh food on June 15, starting at 9 a.m. The initiative, organized in partnership with local faith leaders, will take place at eight churches and one shopping plaza. Each box will include a selection of fruits, vegetables, eggs, and protein to provide nutritious meals for families.

This effort is part of a broader initiative that began in May 2020, with DeKalb County having distributed nearly 155,000 boxes of food using American Rescue Plan funds. The distribution underscores the county’s ongoing commitment to supporting its residents, particularly during special occasions like Father’s Day.
