Lutheran Towers to Open No-Charge On-Site Grocery Store in Partnership with Goodr

WHAT:

Lutheran Towers, a HUD subsidized senior independent living community in Atlanta, Georgia, will celebrate the grand opening of its no charge onsite grocery store with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, January 17, 2022.

The first of its kind in the nation, Lutheran Towers no charge grocery store will help to meet the basic needs of the residents in its senior independent living community for low-income persons. This innovative senior anti-hunger initiative will serve to increase access to food for individuals living at Lutheran Towers.

For 50 years, Lutheran Towers has been committed to providing a safe, quality, and affordable home with person-centered supportive services that empowers its residents to thrive. Towards that end, in 2018, we created our first on-site free feeding program, and each year since then, the type of hunger prevention and intervention programs operated by Lutheran Towers and the pounds of food disseminated annually to our residents have grown to more than 75,000 pounds in 2021 alone. With the launch of our onsite grocery, it will notably enhance Lutheran Towers’ capacity to address food insecurity in its 15-story building located in Midtown Atlanta.

Monday, January 17, 2022, 1:00pm- 2:30pm
