DeKalb County is purchasing approximately 20,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies from area troops for its upcoming food distribution and for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Due to the pandemic, approximately 720,000 boxes of cookies sit unsold in metro-Atlanta warehouses. The cookies will be distributed during the county's May 1 food distribution. Since May 2020, DeKalb County has provided fruit, vegetables and protein to more than 31,000 DeKalb County families.
