  • A sewer line repair project at Hawkeye Harvest Food Bank, 22 North Georgia, forces the closure of their alley entrance. Those coming for food are asked to come to the north door entrance to Mohawk Square. People should also not use the alley when they drive to the food bank. Everyone is encouraged to use the parking lot north of the food bank to eliminate congestion and avoid the possibility of driving accidents. The food bank will be open from 1-4 on Monday afternoon. A spokesperson for the food bank said they hope that the interruption will only be for Monday.
