Cobb Community to Provide Lunches for Austell Elementary, Mableton Elementary Students, More Locations Coming

Thanks to community support and the South Cobb Council of PTA, students will be able to pick up lunches at locations near Austell Elementary and Mableton Elementary schools from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday-Friday, and additional satellite locations are coming.  

Volunteers started preparing the food at Family Life Restoration Center Monday morning at 8:00 a.m.  

The volunteers will distribute the food at Austell First United Methodist Church and in a tent across from Mableton Elementary School Monday-Friday. For the Mableton location, families can participate by driving up to Mableton Square and lunch bags will be handed to you in your car.  

The lunch distributions are not limited by school zone. 

Cobb Schools is partnering with MUST Ministries to feed Cobb families in need.  

To help more of the families in need, the South Cobb Council of PTA is also coordinating with other community organizations to open satellite locations that will be closer to families who need them. 

For example, Destiny World Church is providing lunch Monday-Friday for the Azure Apartments on Riverside. There will also be lunches available at the Kingsley Village Apartments, Parkview Apartments, and Hunters Grove Apartments in Austell Monday-Friday.  

For those interested in helping the South Cobb Council of PTA feed those in need, contact PTA president Tre Hutchins via trehutchins@gmail.com or 404-384-5302.
