About Restock '16

About Restock the Shelves '16

Restock the Shelves is DJJ's new after-holiday agency-wide canned food drive to help our local food banks refill their pantries. This December, Commissioner Avery D. Niles encourages Georgia's Juvenile Justice Team to help end hunger in our communities by collecting canned goods. DJJ regional and facility staff will compete for prizes as we replenish volunteer food pantries and help feed hungry families throughout the state.


For Restock the Shelves '16, the Department of Juvenile Justice has set a goal of 4,000 canned goods for this year's campaign. Check back here often to see the current total of canned goods collected statewide.
