GAINESVILLE - The Georgia Mountain Food Bank Saturday night launched its new new giving society at the first annual Harvesters Club Dinner.

The Harvesters Club recognizes donors who give at least $1,000 annually to the food bank.

A spokeswoman said that this past year, the food bank experienced "tremendous growth. As our reach increases, so do the resources necessary to continue the mission to address hunger, health and quality of life by serving those in need." This, she added, is why the food bank is launching the Harvesters Club.

The food bank is an affiliate of the Atlanta Community Food Bank and collects surplus food and grocery products for distribution to nonprofit partner agencies serving the hungry in Dawson, Forsyth, Hall, Lumpkin and Union counties. These programs provide direct assistance to families and individuals who are in need of food assistance due to job loss or low income.
