Where to find free food for Thanksgiving in Atlanta

More than 2,200 local families will benefit this Thanksgiving as a local business gives away thousands of dollars in groceries.

ATLANTA — Several local businesses and organizations are teaming up to provide meals to more than thousands of metro families this holiday season. The Witherite Law Group’s annual raffle will provide 2,000 boxes of Thanksgiving food with turkeys to families in need.

The organization said the boxes will be filled with fresh fruits, vegetables and shelf-stable foods.

The turkey giveaway will take place from 6 to 10 a.m. next Thursday, Nov. 17, at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church at 6400 Woodrow Road in Lithonia.

The event is free and open to the community. Tickets for the food boxes will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the company.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, turkey prices are expected to be higher than in previous years due to inflation.

“The past two years have been challenging for our community. People are struggling to meet their basic needs, including providing food for their families,” said Amy Witherite, founder of Witherite Law Group.

In addition to the Thanksgiving food raffle, the company will be giving away about 200 grocery gift cards, valued at $100 each, next Wednesday, Nov. 16, at Wayfield Foods locations in Jonesboro and Lithonia .
