Can-Do Food Drive


The CAN-DO Food Drive is the city's annual effort to to fill the shelves of local food pantries. Donations of canned food and non-perishable items can be dropped off in bins during each concert of our Summer Concert Series, as well as at other events. You can always bring donations to the Public Works building at 345 Lively Avenue. Donations are taken to the Norcross Community Co-op for distribution around the community. Be sure to start saving items, if everyone can donate just one can, it can make a real difference in our community!

The CAN-Do Food Drive is making a special appearance at the city’s Summer Concert and First Friday Concert Series. When you come out to enjoy this month’s musical performance, please consider bringing a single-serve, individually packaged food item with you for our collection basket. All donations will be delivered to the new food pantry available inside the Norcross Library, thanks to a community partnership between the library, The Alliance, Perimeter Church’s Impact Norcross, Norcross First United Methodist Church and Carolee’s in Downtown Norcross.
