Food That Rocks

Salute to our Sandy Springs restaurants

Thank you for supporting Food that Rocks over the years. While we’re not able to have our event as we know it, we’re determined and excited to salute and support our restaurant community. For one special week Saturday, July 4 through Friday, July 10th let’s continue to do takeout, delivery and dine in, where available. Seven days and seven nights of the best food, wine, beer and cocktails our city offers. More than 30 of Sandy Springs’ favorite restaurants will be rocking their restaurants every night and 100% of all revenue goes directly to the restaurants.

In addition, we ask for your help in supporting our Sandy Springs based charities who are also struggling to meet the increased needs in our community.

Together we will survive and thrive!
