My Brother's Keeper at Georgia State University served the community at the Center Helping Obesity In Children End Successfully (C.H.O.I.C.E.S.) 6th Annual Thanksgiving Mobile Food Pantry on Nov. 19, 2022, supporting the distribution of hundreds of meals to metro Atlanta families during the holiday season.
Members of My Brother's Keeper (MBK) performed the service to the community at the Atlanta Technical College distribution site.
Over the last 20 years, the mission of C.H.O.I.C.E.S. has been to fight childhood obesity and during this event, hundreds of meals were prepared in support of Metro Atlanta families during the holiday season.
MBK at Georgia State seeks to nurture a community focused on the personal, educational, and professional needs and development of Black males.
MBK aims to accomplish these goals through one-on-one and group mentorship, connecting students to research, scholarships, and job opportunities, introducing students to a network of community partners, and, most importantly, connecting students to one another.
