Westside Provisions District's 'Tinsel and Twine' partners with ACFB

Festive pop-up event featuring photos with Santa, a holiday stocking bar and old-fashioned candy counter also gives shoppers a way to give while they receive.

Returning for a second season, Westside Provision District’s (WSPD) holiday pop-up event, "Tinsel and Twine," promises to wrap the season in holiday cheer this December 8th and 15th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Shoppers can get into the spirit of the season and help WSPD reach its goal of 10,000 donations by bringing non-perishable food items to the District and dropping them at any of the easy-to-find donation barrels located at:

  • The breezeway by Star Provisions
  • Taqueria del Sol
  • Bungalow Classic
  • The breezeway by Room & Board
  • White Provision Residences Lobby at 1100 Howell Mill Road
  • White Provision parking garage levels one through three, by the elevators
  • Inside the Tinsel & Twine pop-up space across the corridor from Perrine’s Wine
  • West Egg Café

The Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) is a nonprofit organization that strives to supply a variety of well-balanced, nutritious foods to families and individuals in need. Their most needed items are:

  • Peanut butter

  • 100 percent fruit juice
  • Canned fruits and vegetables

The pop-up also offers old-fashioned, "photo booth"-style snapshots with Santa, handmade holiday goodies perfect for stuffing stockings and "Boutique de Noel" by Le Jardin Francais, located next door to Tinsel and Twine featuring handmade wreaths and festive holiday greenery, and lots more. WSPD is located near the intersection of 14th Street and Howell Mill Road and free parking is available in a multi-level parking deck located at 1100 Howell Mill.

Like Westside Provisions District, ACFB is located on the westside of the city, but originally began operating in 1979 from a small space at Midtown's St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. ACFB now distributes more than 35 million pounds of food and grocery products each year from a 129,600 square-foot facility located at 732 Joseph East Lowery Boulevard.

The product is accessed by more than 600 partner nonprofits that provide food assistance to families and individuals in 29 counties across metro Atlanta and north Georgia.

ACFB leads seven distinct projects that reinforce its mission to fight hunger by engaging, educating and empowering our community: Atlanta Prosperity Campaign, Atlanta’s Table, Community Gardens, Hunger 101, Hunger Walk/Run, Kids In Need and Product Rescue Center.

ACFB is a member of Feeding America, the national network of more than 200 food banks.
