The second annual Food 'N Fun Festival is less than a month away. The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, May 10 at the Morgan Falls Athletic Complex in Sandy Springs.
Food 'N Fun is a fundraiser for the Sandy Springs-based Community Assistance Center, which helps less fortunate residents in the Sandy Springs/Dunwoody area.
Admission to the event is $10 for adults, but free for children 14 and under.
The family-friendly event includes a community-wide Food Drive Contest, Hunger Awareness Walk, Shopping Cart Decoration Contest & Parade and a community festival.
Anyone who wishes to participate in the Hunger Awareness Walk can register online. The fee is $10, which includes admission to the festival. Children age 14 and under are free to participate in the walk and festival.
Awards will be given to teams who collect the most food and have the best decorated shopping carts. Groups are encouraged to participate in team events.
Children and adults can participate in fitness and sporting events such as Snag Golf, Army fitness contests, basketball shooting contest, a cake walk and more. Children will also be able to visit The Kid Zone for activities and crafts, bounce houses, food, music, a bicycle raffle and more.
Those planning to attend the festival are asked to bring a food item, which will be donated towards the Community Assistance Center's food pantry for the summer months. The summer months are when requests for food assistance are at their highest, the organization said.
