Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead's Community Honors Program selects key Atlanta-area organizations making a positive difference in the community.  The current honoree is the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

Founded in 1979, ACFB procures more than 50 million pounds of food and groceries each year and distributes it to more than 600 nonprofit partner agencies serving families and individuals in 29 metro Atlanta and north Georgia counties.

Fulton Focus on WCLK is a joint production of WCLK Public Affairs and Fulton County Government Communications.  The October edition of Fulton Focus includes trenchant discussions about early and election day voting, the Atlanta Fulton County Public Library e-Campus online learning program, and Halloween safety tips from the Fulton County Police Department.

WCLK Public Affairs is always looking for great community engagement success stories.  When we heard about a group that has been feeding homeless people downtown for nearly 30 years, we decided to feature them on the WCLK Public Affairs Block.

Charles  Storne is the Coordinator for the Feeding The Homeless Program at the Decatur Seventh Day Adventist Church.  He has been leading an effort since 1988 that has resulted in feeding between 800-900 people a fresh hot breakfast every Saturday morning, staffed and funded entirely by volunteers.

The Georgia Council for International Visitors, or GCIV, works with the U.S Department of State to host emerging world leaders on visits to Georgia. GCIV arranges professional meetings and also invites these visitors to enjoy dinner as a guest in an American home.

A home-cooked meal and some good-old fashioned Georgia hospitality always creates the best and most lasting memories of a young leader's visit.

Citizen diplomacy is an opportunity open to every citizen of State of Georgia.

Fulton Focus is a joint production of WCLK and Fulton County Communications, and covers important Fulton County Government programs and initiatives.  The September edition of Fulton Focus aired in the WCLK Public Affairs Block Saturday morning, September 20.  You can listen to the interviews here:

Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves joined Rob Maynard on the WCLK Public Affairs Block to talk about his annual Back-To-School Kickoff Event.

Fulton Focus is a partnership between WCLK and Fulton County Communications that helps everyone be aware of programs and initiatives available to the nearly 1 million people living in WCLK's home county.
