Motorcyclists on a “Great American Deli Schlep” came through Atlanta last month, stopping at The General Muir in Emory Point, as part of an effort to raise awareness about hunger and food insecurity.
The Sabra Riders of Atlanta met organizer Steve Goode in Auburn, Ala. June 27 before the group convened June 30 at the Emory deli. The 75-day cross-country trek involved stops at 42 Jewish delis, starting in Goode’s native Chicago, and was to hit every state in the U.S.
Goode was inspired to organize the schlep by a map of the country’s best Jewish delis compiled by The Nosher in 2018, according to The Times of Israel. The group also is working with the nonprofit MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger to raise awareness about the issue.
