The Place hosting annual hunger awareness lunch



CUMMING, Ga. — The Place of Forsyth County is hosting the Annual Hunger Awareness lunch to increase awareness for the poverty in the county and fight hunger. It takes place at noon on Sept. 19 at the Cumming First United Methodist Church.

The Place of Forsyth County assists citizens with essential needs in order to be self-sustaining.

“Neighbors in our community don’t have enough food for their family,” said Executive Director Joni Smith. “Many eat only canned food and never eat fresh products such as eggs or fresh fruits and vegetables.”

This fundraiser will benefit the food market at The Place so that these fresh items can be provided for those in need.

The lunch will feature testimonials from clients and volunteers from The Place who have been served by their programs and services. There will also be a thrift store boutique opening at 11:30 a.m.

Tickets to the lunch are $25 per person and reservations can be made with Ashley Carroll at or 770-887-1098.
