Come get into the holiday spirit as we volunteer with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to sort and pack canned and packaged food goods.


When food needs to be inspected after it’s donated, where does it go? To the Food Bank’s Product Rescue Center! And there’s no way we could inspect, sort and pack all that food without volunteers. Constantly buzzing with activity, the Product Rescue Center (PRC) is the area of the Food Bank where all food drive and salvaged food items are brought to be inspected and packaged by volunteers for distribution to more than 600 nonprofit partner agencies.

Food Bank trucks pick up goods from food drives, grocery stores and manufacturers, and drop them off at the Product Rescue Center every day. Teams of trained volunteers then inspect, sort and pack these goods. This area of operation is crucial as it ensures that retail, salvage and food drive donations will be safe and wholesome for distribution to people in need.

Don't let the winter weather get you down! Come join us for our annual holiday party. This year, we will be doing a "brown bag wine tasting". All this means is that everyone will bring in a bottle of their favorite wine (please keep it under $15). We will then taste and rate all the wines and pick a winner (yes, you do get a prize!).  

In keeping with the grand American tradition of the "Tacky Sweater Christmas Party", any ridiculous holiday wear will be encouraged.  I would recommend hitting the thrift stores early, since they tend to run out of the good stuff pretty quickly.  Though in a pinch, you could always decorate yourself with Christmas lights, add an extension cord, and voila!

I am also planning on getting party favors for everyone, so  PLEASE RSVP early so I can get an accurate head-count.  I hope to see you all there.  Until then, stay warm, and start sampling those wines!  And if you aren't a wine person, you can just go to the store, find the wine section, spin around, and pick whatever you end up facing (Disclaimer: Please do not attempt unless you are a professional.  Rotaract and its affiliated organizations are not responsible for the cost of broken wine bottles/embarrassment/inadvertent youtube fame resulting from attempting this stunt).

I will send out the address when RSVPs close on 12/5, so check your e-mail! Please let us know if you don't receive this e-mail!!!
