Intown Food Pantry
The Intown Food Pantry is an emergency food program that serves the Intown/Midtown area of Atlanta. Its aim is to help alleviate hunger by providing nutritious food and social service information to those who need them. The pantry serves the needs of the elderly, disabled and homeless in these areas. No person is turned away. The Pantry has just moved to the Atlanta Presbyterian Church on Ponce deLeon Ave and is experiencing a guest growth that is leaving the pantry short of food items for our guests. This food drive will help to generate needed food/bags/packing for the pantry and its guests. The Pantry can take any/all dry good/canned items like Juice, soups, fruit, vegetables, ready to eat meals, pasta, spaghetti sauce, as well as the needed peanut butter, jelly and canned meats (Tuna, Chicken, Salmon, Spam). Meat Type items are usually the most in demand. The pantry is also looking for donations of fresh food items to make meals for the hungry on the Saturday mornings of our food distribution. You can contact Mike Henigan to arrange for any fresh food donations or after Convention donations. We can also take donations of ANY shopping bags and Ziploc-type bags as well. We use several hundred shopping bags every week. Remember to donate to your favorite track. Track raising the most in donations wins the coveted AnachroCon Traveling Cornucopia. Anachrocon looks to raise 500lbs of food in 2017 to top its donation of 360 lbs in 2016. AnachroCon won the Inaugural 2016 Convention Food Challenge….so we do want to win the 2017 Atlanta Convention Cornucopia Award, the local convention that raises the most food for the Intown Food Pantry The ACCA was designed is sponsored by the HMS Achilles, the local Royal Manticoran Navy Honor Harrington Fan Club.
