ATLANTA - One of the newest Falcons knows his way around Georgia, and Todd Gurley didn't wait to make an impact.
The former Georgia Bulldog donated meals to feed hundreds of vulnerable community members and healthcare workers on the front lines in Atlanta through HUNGRY@HOME.
"Besides the city that you grew up in or the town you grew up in, you definitely want to make the city that you're playing in home and definitely give back," Gurley said Friday. "So to be able to help those in need in the hospitals in Atlanta, it's a no-brainer. Especially during a time like this, it's not even about football; it's about taking care of your family and making sure they're safe and helping others that need help."
Gurley donated meals to low-income, high-risk community members, the Ronald McDonald House Atlanta and two local hospitals, Northside Hospital and Piedmont Hospital, that have been impacted heavily by coronavirus.
Gurley said he plans to donate even more in the coming weeks in light of the coronavirus crisis.
The family-style food delivery service provides people much-needed access to healthy and top chef prepared meals without ever leaving their homes, a necessity during the statewide shelter-in-place mandate.
