Feed Fannin

Founded in 2009, Feed Fannin is a volunteer organization working together to educate and encourage our community towards self-sufficiency while providing food for those in need. We are committed to eliminating hunger in Fannin County and the Copper Basin.

Key Activities

Our diverse group of volunteers apply their time and energy to help Feed Fannin through programs such as:

Community Garden – We manage Community Gardens, located on Ada Street in Blue Ridge and at other sites in Fannin County, that provide space for local residents to grow fruits and vegetables.  Our members work in the gardens to provide over 10,000 pounds of fresh produce to the Family Connection Food Pantry.  In addition, Feed Fannin participates in the Downtown Market.  This is held on Saturday mornings from May through October where local residents and farmers offer fruits, vegetables and crafts for sale.

Food Pantry – We support the Food Pantry that is part of the Family Connection by providing volunteer workers, food, and money to mitigate the costs of feeding the hungry in Fannin County.  For more information on the Food Pantry, contact the Family Connection at 706-632-6063.

Education Classes – We provide information, education, and training to those who want to learn to be more self-sufficient in growing, preserving, and preparing their own food.

Fund Raising  – We sponsor several fund raising events throughout the year that provide the money needed to support our activities. Join us at: Bowls of Hope, Arts in the Park, and Light up Blue Ridge.  For more information on our fund raising, contact Connie Galloway at 706-374-4372.
