The Chattanooga Area Food Bank sent nearly 10,000 pounds of food and disaster relief supplies to the Calhoun Seventh-day Adventist Church in Gordon County, Ga., Friday morning.

The truck rolled out with sandwich meat, snacks, water, flashlights, toilet paper and paper towels to help meet the needs of those affected by Wednesday’s tornadoes and severe weather.

Additional supplies will be sent this weekend.

“Our ability to respond to natural disasters never ceases to amaze me,” David Aft, president of the Community Foundation of North Georgia. “Without hesitation, people act. We give, we volunteer, we reach out. It is not just what we do but who we are. We deeply appreciate the food bank’s commitment to Northwest Georgia and the victims of Wednesday’s storms.”


The Chattanooga Area Food Bank keeps supplies on hand to give to member agencies in times of need.
