WE ARE … Action Ministries Metro – Atlanta
We lead people out of poverty by providing hunger relief and educational opportunities to our metro area neighbors in need.
A nutritious weekday meal at the Women’s Community Kitchen, where we serve more than 20,000 meals a year, provides hunger relief and fellowship to low-income and homeless women and children in a safe, nurturing environment.
Our sack lunch program provides meals for the weekend, ensuring that women and children are fed seven days a week.
Where applicable, we provide referrals to needed community resources.
Each Sunday for 35 years, Trinity Table has provided food for the hungry in a hospitable setting that affirms the dignity and worth of those in need. Action Ministries partnered with Trinity Table in 2017 to continue the work of this program. Each guest who comes to the Table is served a hot meal and given a to go bag of food. The Table is the only consistent source of free food in the Capitol Hill neighborhood on Sundays.
Educational opportunities offered at the Smart Kid After-School program — such as one-on-one tutoring and homework assistance, Reading is Fun, Math Night and other enrichment programs and academically stimulating summer camps — help children succeed at school, removing one of the barriers that can prevent people from breaking the cycle of poverty.
The Smart Kid summer enrichment program provides summer enrichment in literacy, physical and emotional fitness, the arts and STEAM subjects to prevent the “summer slide” that can hinder children’s education when they return to school in the fall.
