Rubber Duck Derby & Family Fun Olympics

Our 4th annual Rubber Duck Derby was another great success!  On Saturday, July 13th 2019 at the West State Street Park in Athens, Athens Food Rescue held an event that was a lot of fun, with family games, prizes and of course our Duck Derby.



Adopt a Duck.

Win a Prize.

Feed the Hungry.
