Feed the Hungry
We bring our children and grandchildren to remind them that they’re fortunate.
In Georgia, our poverty statistics can be overwhelming. According to U.S. census data, Georgia has the third highest overall poverty rate in the nation, and we rank sixth in the nation for food insecurity. Feed the Hungry provides more than 1 million meals annually in Atlanta and much of north Georgia. Nearly 60 percent of the food goes to children.
We also host hundreds of volunteers each year — volunteers like the VFW Post 2681 and the Ladies Auxiliary, who continue to serve their country and community by packing Feed the Hungry food boxes.
The Publix Food for Sharing program provides us with food for hundreds of hungry families during the holiday season through generous donations from Publix shoppers. Feed the Hungry offers congregations, schools, companies and civic organizations the ability to make a meaningful impact to relieve hunger in their own communities.
