Our mission is to mobilize the Piedmont region communities to address the challenges of poverty by focusing on hunger relief, housing and education. Our programs are designed to provide our extensive network of community partners and volunteers with the tools and expertise to lead fellow Georgians out of poverty.
From Feed the Hungry food boxes to our Smart Lunch, Smart Kid summer hunger relief initiative, Action Ministries is taking action in the Piedmont region community. In our first summer, we delivered nearly 17,000 lunches to Newton County children and in the first half of 2015, provide hunger relief to more than 4,000 people with Feed the Hungry food boxes.
Together, we can transform even more lives.
