Bring Cans for the Food Drive!!!!

Let’s share the love!

Most Needed Items

As a part of our dedication to providing healthier food to families, the ACFB would like to ask you, our food and fund drive champions, to help us achieve this goal. Vulnerable communities and those who live within them often lack access to healthy food or the resources to acquire it with. These same communities are also disproportionately affected by diet-related chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and obesity. By providing the healthiest food possible to our neighbors in need, we can help in the fight against two battles that are intrinsically linked: hunger and chronic disease in our community.

Focusing on highly nutritious foods, we aim to distribute food that will enable people suffering the ill-effects of hunger and poverty to feel stronger and healthier. Some of the most needed food items are:

Whole grain foods
Whole wheat pasta
Brown rice
Whole grain cereal
Whole wheat flour
Whole grain crackers
Plain oatmeal
Shelf stable milk (cow, soy, rice, etc.)
Fruit, dried or canned in light syrup or juice
Low-sodium, no salt added vegetables
Low-sodium pasta sauce in plastic container
Foods high in protein
Natural peanut butter (no hydrogenated oil)
Dried beans
Dried peas
Dried lentils
Canned tuna – canned in water, not oil
Canned salmon – canned in water, not oil
Canned chicken – canned in water, not oil
Unsalted nuts
100% fruit and/or vegetable juice
Cooking oil
Olive oil
Canola oil

Families and individuals who struggle to put food on the table also have a tough time with the household essentials that many of us take for granted. In addition to food, these non-food items are greatly needed and appreciated:

Paper products

2014 PPD Parking Info

Important Information from the Parking Fairy:

MARTA is best!

We do have available to us the Thankful Baptist Church’s parking lot, which is directly across the train tracks from the event located at 830 College Avenue. All vendors MUST park there after unloading their goods. We ask that unless you have a physical restriction to please park in this lot.

There is curbside parking on W. Howard Ave. ONLY on the side of the Atlanta Friends Meeting Hall NOT on the opposite side of the street. If you do you will be towed.

If parking on any side streets make sure you are not blocking driveways, fire hydrants, intersections…again you will be towed.

There will be handicap parking available at the Atlanta Friends Meeting Hall parking lot as well as some extra parking for festival attendees. The first entrance, next to the meeting hall, will be blocked so you will have to go to the next entrance down.


Remember your cans!

Volunteer, Vendor, Info Booth, and Workshop Forms

Event interest forms are up and active.


We are a free event to the public and so we rely on volunteers to keep things running.  We have a special need for early risers who would like to help with set up and for those who are willing to stay until the last corner is swept and the chairs are all positioned correctly.  We also have need for folks to help flag arriving cars of attendees away from the vendors and toward parking options. We will be having a couple of short work sessions leading up to the event to get things ready and to get volunteer positions planned out. Would you like to volunteer?

Class Teachers:

We are primarily an educational event.  Many people come to learn about traditions, paths, faiths, and practices. If you would like to offer a class, activity, or discussion, please let us know.

Informational Booths and Vendors:

If you are interested in a Booth, table, or reading space, please follow the think to let us know of your interest.

Thank You and Blessings,

Lady Arden

Volunteer Call



Hello folks,

Many have asked what they can do to help. So, here is the rundown:

We are happy to have a few volunteers through the day but our greatest need is for set up time (6:15 or so for the very early risers or 7:00 AM for the general set up time and 5-7 PM for take down time). We need to clear the inside so that we can let the vendors set up. Also, we need assistance unloading the PPD items from our cars and setting up the area with signs, etc.

If you are interested in assisting please let our volunteer coordinator, Mehurt, know. Please include a contact cell number as well as special talents and abilities (such as able to assist in moving bulky items)

Also, the more groups of friends can carpool or shuttle each other from Decatur Square parking or MARTA the better. We are not able to provide shuttling due to agreements with our corporation, but that does not stop friends from offering each other rides :-)

Specialty requests:
If there is anyone who is experienced, available and willing to volunteer to work with sound, (working the sound board for a performer or two) .

If there is anyone available with a tape measure who is able to take some parking lot measurements and pictures for me very soon (before Sunday) please let me know and I will get you the details of what we need.

I have a small possible need for some assistance with some small tasks, most of which can be completed online and e-mailed.

Items needed:
Looking to borrow some orange cones (parking type) and possibly a sawhorse or two or an A-frame sign or two (which are outdoor safe).

Donation of construction paper and glue, and glitter for some children’s crafts.

Email Mehurt at:
