Support our Full Plate Project

What began as a short-term program in May of 2020 to help address the skyrocketing number of food-insecure people during the COVID-19 crisis is now a formal meal delivery program called the Full Plate Project. Restaurants, commercial kitchens, and other meal providers prepare family-style meals, and we coordinate the logistics and ensure their beautiful meals are delivered safely to SHA partner agencies.

Our newest expansion of this program is our Meals with Meaning initiative in partnership with HelloFresh and Pratt Industries. Every week, we are packing and distributing 8,000 complete meal kits to Atlanta families!
