Fannin County Family Connection (FCFC) serves the community in many ways, including the operation of the FOOD PANTRY, distributing nutritious food to over 17,000 individuals annually.
Thursday, October 15, 2020 was the busiest day EVER in the 22-year history of the Food Pantry! And, this does not include the delivery of the CARES boxes that were also distributed that day!
During the week of October 12-16, 2020, we served 254 families (114 families over average for this time of year) and 350 individuals. For the week, the FCFC Heroes Team (our amazing volunteers) delivered 15,420 pounds of food to client's cars. Plus, they distributed 100 CARES boxes that were separate from those distributed by Feed Fannin volunteers. When all was said and done, the Pantry distributed 18,540 pounds of food during this week. That translates into 15,450 meals...in one week!
FCFC also provides a FREE CLOTHING CLOSET.
The FCFC COLLABORATIVE serves as the local decision-making body, bringing community partners together monthly to develop, implement and evaluate plans that address the serious challenges facing Georgia’s children and families. All organizations are welcome at this round table.
Additionally, AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS are conducted for underage consumption of alcohol and training courses for the Darkness2Light Stewards of Children programs are also offered.
