Time commitment includes (subject to availability of volunteers)

On July 14th at 5 PM, there will be an opportunity for you and your family to network with other families affected by Crohn's and Colitis at Atlanta’s Food Truck Park – “an everyday place to come together as a community and experience food and drink.”

We encourage your entire family to come out and enjoy an evening of fun, camaraderie and fellowship while getting to meet others who experience the same life as you. Each family is responsible for purchasing their own food, but the memories and laughs are all free.

Many of your favorite IBD physicians will be out to support this event - and YOU! Families will have fun sharing dinner together while also getting to know others who live with IBD and thrive in spite of it.

Please consider joining us - we would love to see you.
