Emory Point to host food security and sustainability event on Saturday, Oct. 19
As part of a month-long celebration of World Food Day, which officially took place on Oct. 16, Emory Point will host a community food security-focused event tomorrow, Oct. 19.
According to a press release from the company, the event, called “Thyme for Change,” will feature several local organizations speaking on-site about their sustainability efforts. The event is part of the company’s yearlong CoreGiving initiative to fight world hunger.
Pike Nurseries will lead a plant-your-own herb garden workshop, and local food organizations, including Wholesome Wave Georgia, Truly Living Well and Slow Food Emory, will be onsite educating guests on food sustainability best practices.
At the culmination of Emory Point’s World Food Day events, all canned goods collected in October will be donated to community partner Atlanta Community Food Bank.
Additionally, both an Atlanta-focused photo exhibition titled “ATL at the Core” and a “Living Giving Sculpture,” which Emory Point unveiled earlier this month, will be on display through the end of October, the release said.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. at Emory Point, located at 855 Emory Point Dr. off of Clifton Road in Atlanta.
