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, Culinary Arts at 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. Primarily, America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia serves as the food source for partner non-profits. We pick up or receive truckloads of food that are donated daily by local and national grocers, businesses, and individuals. Second Harvest inspects, sorts, and stocks donated items in our 30,000 square foot warehouse. Donations are supplemented with purchased items. Fresh and non-perishable products are distributed to more than 300 nonprofit agencies in a 21 county service delivery area that includes both urban and rural communities. Our partner agencies include food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, domestic abuse facilities, senior centers and daycare centers for low-income children.
