Sankofa Community Food Pantry will be offering a free lunch drive-through starting on Wednesday, April 1, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 1240 Sigman Road, Conyers.
The nonprofit is hosting the grab-and-go lunch program weekly, Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., through May 15 in response to school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
