America's Second Harvest Southeastern (Brunswick) Branch
Brunswick, GA 31525
Details: Established in Savannah in 1981, serves as the food safety net for tens of thousands of children, senior citizens, low-income families, and people with disabilities who are at-risk for hunger throughout southeastern Georgia. We work diligently to feed the hungry by distributing nutritious food to non-profit agencies and at-risk elderly and youth. Our programs include Brown Bag for the Elderly, Grace’s Kitchen, Kids Cafe, and Mobile Food Pantry. These programs are designed to provide hunger relief to those most vulnerable. We partner with 300 churches and non-profit agencies to provide emergency food assistance across Coastal Georgia. Last year, Second Harvest food bank provided more than 8.1 million meals (more than 9.6 million pounds of food) to hungry people in our area. Support from the community and collaboration with partners make it possible for us to reach so many in need right here in our own community.
FaithWorks - Sparrows Nest
Brunswick, GA 31520
Details: Sparrows Nest is a clearing house for about 30 churches who wish to help those in crisis in our community. For those seeking financial assistance, they must provide a bill, ID, and proof that something has happened recently (hospitalization, death, accident, etc.) that has disrupted their normal cash flow. For those seeking a bus ticket, we go to great lengths to find family, employers, or service organizations in the community that they wish to travel to before we purchase a ticket. We also maintain a food pantry to assist with food needs. Additionally, donated furniture, appliances, diapers, towels, washcloths, toiletries, etc. are often given to those who have need of them. Sparrows Nest is open from 9 until Noon Monday through Thursday and assists about 15 families each day
