The seventh annual Dawson Feed the Hungry is on for Christmas Day 2021 with a few small changes from last year, according to an announcement by event organizers. 

According to the announcement, this year’s event will be at the Dawsonville Pool Room from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and will bring free food to anyone in need of a meal on the holiday. 

Event organizer Scotty Seay wrote in the announcement he is looking for volunteers for the event, as well as business sponsors. 

“I will be looking for volunteers/delivery volunteers/servers, and food donations if you can,” Seay wrote in the announcement. “Any businesses that want to sponsor the event will be welcomed as well.” 

The menu for the event is still being worked on, and Seay said that he will announce it at its completion. Hot meals will be available for anyone who needs it. 

“The Pool Room will be closed for the public, but we will be there preparing food for the less fortunate, veterans, frontline workers, police, fire, EMTs, 911 dispatch, families in need, elderly shut-ins, or anyone that needs a hot meal Christmas Day,” the announcement said. 

The Pirkle family is donating the Pool Room’s space for the event. Seay said that without the willingness of the community and volunteers, the event would not run as well as it does each year.

“Please stop in at the Pool Room to eat and give a big thanks for allowing us to continue this event,” the announcement said. “It takes a village and I couldn’t do it without wonderful volunteers and support that all the community gives.”
