“Second Helpings Atlanta was delighted to be selected as one of the nonprofit beneficiaries for last year’s Food That Rocks,” says Joe Labriola, executive director of Second Helpings Atlanta, “The venue provided an incredible amount of visibility and helped raise levels of awareness and appreciation for the food rescue work we do in our community. The Taste of Atlanta staff continues to be a great partner and we look forward to working with them again this year.”
“Last year’s event was a wonderful way for the community to get together and celebrate all the good happening in Sandy Springs,” says Cheryl Yagoda, founder and vice president of Ian’s Friends Foundation. “Food That Rocks was a great way to meet new neighbors, sample the great food in our area, and find out about charities doing amazing work – all in our back yard!”Photo Courtesy: Sandy Springs Hospitality & Tourism
“We made some new and extremely beneficial connections at last year’s Food That Rocks,” says Doug Barron, executive director of GOCA. “Those connections have turned in to community partnerships, and we are thrilled to be included again this year so we can build some more.”
