Ways to Give

Food insecurity remains an ongoing challenge in metro Atlanta, and we are stepping up to answer the call. 1 in 9 people in our service area isn’t sure where their next meal is coming from. Each week, Second Helpings Atlanta rescues enough surplus food to deliver an average of 73,000 meals to individuals and families in need. Join us in our mission as we “Drive Out Hunger One Mile at a Time”.

Support Meals with Meaning

Meals with Meaning is our partnership program with HelloFresh, Pratt Industries, and the Atlanta City Council. Every week, we assemble and distribute 2,000 four-serving meal kits. That’s 8,000 meals going to our neighbors in need every single week!

Since we began this partnership in August 2021, we have packed 500,000 meals, engaged 650 volunteers, and delivered meal kits to 32 different community distribution locations. Make a gift today to support this impact.

Give to Full Plates, Full Hearts

On August 29th, 2022, we gathered at Mercedes Benz Stadium to raise awareness around our mission, celebrate our impact, and to honor Liz Blake and Sheri Labovitz. Though the event is over, our work continues.
