Community Foods - $1.79/lb Chicken On Sale Now

Community Foods - $1.79/lb Chicken On Sale Now
Have you heard of Community Foods?

Last month I placed my first order through Community Foods.  It’s actually based in Cumming, GA but they offer deliveries throughout Metro Atlanta.  The overall concept is that they sell 3 products – Chicken (hormone free, no steroids, etc.), Ground Beef (all natural, no hormones, etc.) and Tilapia.  Now my ideal Tilapia would be wild-caught, this tilapia is farm-raised.  But it’s really “pretty” (ha!  that always sounds so funny to say about food).

Right, now chicken just became available for delivery.  Click here to learn more about Community Foods and their $1.79/lb chicken.

ATLANTA | Help for in-town homebuyers

ATLANTA -- The City of Atlanta and Wells Fargo are teaming up to help people buy homes in the city.

Pre-registration for the event at the Georgia World Congress Center is closed. The event will be held Friday, February 10 and Saturday, February 11 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The program, called Neighborhood Lift, is being tested in Los Angeles and Atlanta, both cities hit hard by the foreclosure crisis.

Walk-ins are still allowed and people must bring documents.

Qualified buyers can receive $15,000 toward a down payment on a home. Families that make up to $83,000 a year and individuals that make no more than $59,000 can qualify.

People would have to buy and close on a home within 60 days and would be required to live in it for five years.

Wells Fargo and the city have put together about 100 homes on an inventory list, and bus tours of those homes will be given. People who qualify are not obligated to buy one of those homes.

DEKALB | 'Undesirable' businesses not welcome in county

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- DeKalb County Commissioner Lee May stood at a busy intersection Friday evening and pointed to what he called undesirable businesses cluttering up, even endangering, the neighborhood.

"You have a liquor store right here, and behind the liquor store you have a grocery store that sells beer and wine.... You have across the street a gas station that sells beer and wine. On the other side of the intersection you have a drug store that sells beer and wine. You have a proliferation of alcohol outlets" at just that one intersection.

And it's a county-wide problem, he said.

This week the county commission approved May's proposal to limit how many additional "undesirable" businesses will be allowed to move into the county, and where they'll be allowed to move in.
