Harvest Outreach Center
Dalton, GA 30721
Details: Harvest Outreach Center has been focused in the past. As a Rehabilitation Organization for Homeless families and individuals. This has been accomplished by Housing, feeding and job placement in the local Communities. However, our emphasis and attention has been focused on an out cry of distress in Hunger, due to the excessive lay offs from the Job market. We have dealt with the Elderly, Shut-ins, displaced families, medically Indigent, and those that are working, but having a difficult time in making ends meet. Our great focus is toward the specialized needs in surrounding Areas of immediate Hunger that faces so many today. There isn't enough money if just one in the family is working, children are not eating well with the common family. It takes every penny when you have small babies to exist. Have you ever looked into the eyes of Hungry Children and watched them when a small amount of food was put before them? It will make your heart sing with delight to know you have helped that suffering to end. Our feeding program is FREE to the public six days a week. Sundays are left open for the Churches. All that is required is to walk-in, sign the register and go eat. We feed a Continental breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily. At any given day of service we can feed 75 or Hundreds. Having a friend in this time of great needs is so imperative.
Northwest Georgia Branch of the Chattanooga Area Food Bank
Dalton, GA 30721
Details: More than 30 years ago, local civic and church leaders organized a committee of concerned citizens to address hunger issues in Hamilton County. Their idea was to collect surplus food from the food industry to share with the needy in our community. This was the beginning of the Chattanooga Area Food Bank. Our mission is “to lead a network of partners in eliminating hunger and promoting better nutrition in our region”. This shared work is supported through yet another network of supporters, including: retail food donors, food manufacturers who donate excess product, corporate donors, charitable foundations, local community and civic groups, and countless individuals who fight hunger with their monetary donations and volunteerism. There is a role for everyone in the fight against hunger. Let us help you find yours.
