North Fulton Community Charities' (NFCC) food pantry is a little fuller today, thanks to the "Summer Jam" party held by the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce Thursday night, which required a food donation "cover charge" from each attendee.
The chamber offices were overflowing with the crowd, most coming straight from their own offices to the event, or perhaps with a quick stop at a local grocery store for something to donate.
This event was part of the chamber's week-long food drive for NFCC.
The food drive culminated with an active push today to fill the charity's truck that was parked at the chamber offices off Haynes Bridge Road at Rainwater Drive. Businesses that have been drop-off points for the food drive in Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell and Johns Creek delivered the food they've collected.
Still want to help? The NFCC's top 10 recommended donations are:
- Canned tuna
- Canned chicken

- Peanut butter (no glass containers)
- Jelly (no glass containers)
- Macaroni and cheese
- Ramen noodles
- Cereal (children friendly)
- Pasta sauce (no glass containers)
- Diapers (sizes 4, 5, 6).
