Second Helpings Atlanta's 90 Minute Model from Second Helpings Atlanta on Vimeo.
Second Helpings Atlanta is committed to helping those who do not know where their next meal is coming from. On average, 1 out of 6 Georgia residents live in a food insecure environment, yet 40 percent of food produced in the United States each year is never consumed. While many look forward to an abundant holiday season, others throughout the region will not share the same luxury.
Since our launch in 2004, Second Helpings Atlanta has collected and distributed over 7.1 million pounds of food, enough to provide over 5.9 million meals. With over 85 Food Donors, 55 Partner Agencies and over 470 Volunteer Drivers, SHA has already made significant impact in the Atlanta area, and needs ongoing support to continuously expand our efforts.
Your donation will help Second Helpings Atlanta continue to use the collective power of small actions to transform people's lives - every day.
We measure our impact on how many meals the surplus food we rescue gets delivered to our network of front line Partner Agencies. As we continue to grow, we have expanded the number of agencies we serve. We have tripled the number of Partner Agencies over the past two years and continue to aggressively recruit new organizations into our network. We are often the primary source of food for many of these agencies, allowing them to redirect their limited financial resources to support other services they provide.
