Meals with Meaning Atlanta – Community Meal Kit Packing

Project Overview

Every Wednesday morning we need a group of about 30 volunteers to help pack meal kits for our community. The meal kits will help alleviate time and financial burdens by providing recipients with ready-to-prepare complete meals. The kits allow recipients to cook fresh, balanced meals and provide the opportunity for families and communities to connect together over a home-cooked meal. Whether you’re an individual looking to make a difference or an organization in need of a team-building activity, you can join a packing event that will conquer food insecurity in our community.

Through the Meals with Meaning Atlanta program Second Helpings Atlanta and our incredible volunteers will assemble and distribute 2,000 four-serving meal kits each week. That’s 8,000 meals going to our neighbors in need every single week through this event.
