Working to keep Clarkston healthy through community collaboration

Explore our healthy living programs

We care deeply about the health and well being of our fellow citizens. One crucial component of health is the food that Clarkston residents eat. For years the Clarkston Community Center has dedicated itself to creating a space for fresh, healthy food to be grown, donated, and distributed, in order to promote healthy living among all of our neighbors.

CCC Food Pantry

Food Pantry

When people are in need, emergency assistance with food and necessities coupled with education and skill development improves their ability to overcome life’s challenges.

The Food Pantry opened in September 2011 and provides low-income families with food once a month, and is open weekly for emergency assistance.  Naturally grown foods from the Community Center Garden are also provided to supplement canned and packaged foods.

The pantry is possible through a partnership with Hands On Atlanta and the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  

Join us in feeding our community members who are in need! The Clarkston Cares Food Pantry is held at the Community Center on the first Saturday of every month, from 9:30 to 11:30am.
