The third annual Food That Rocks from Taste of Atlanta on Saturday evening, June 9, was the first event on the City Green at City Springs, the new city center in Sandy Springs.

Although a lightning scare delayed things a bit, the food from Sandy Springs eateries was creative and pleased the crowd, which also enjoyed live music. The event raised money for Second Helpings Atlanta, the Community Assistance Center and the Drake House.
