HOPE Atlanta Hunger Programs

Our hunger relief programs are uniquely tailored to the communities we serve. Formerly Action Ministries, our network of volunteers, food pantries, community kitchens, and childhood feeding programs improves access to fresh meat and produce, prepared meals and pantry foods in our local communities.

For over 60 years, Action Ministries has walked alongside of millions of women, men, and children on their journey towards personal flourishing.

At HOPE Atlanta, we are proud to honor the legacy and continue the work statewide.

Smart Lunch Smart Kid

For Food Insecure Children

Nearly one million children in Georgia schools are eligible to receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch. This crucial meal disappears in the summer and during school breaks. Smart Lunch, Smart Kid (SLSK) provides nutritious summer meals and enrichment activities for nearly 7,000 children across the state. In addition to nutritious, meals, SLSK volunteers deliver thousands of books and enrichment activities to improve literacy and help bridge achievement gaps.


For Food Insecure Children

More than one million children in Georgia depend on free or reduced-price meals through government programs. School meals may be the only food thousands of children eat during the day, leaving them hungry and food insecure during the weekend. Our SuperPack program provides children at risk of weekend hunger with a bag of nutritionally balanced, nonperishable and easy to prepare food that can easily and discreetly fit into a backpack before the weekend or long holidays.

Feed the Hungry Food Boxes

Feed the Hungry provides more than one million meals annually throughout Georgia. Nearly 60 percent of the food we receive as vital members of The Publix Food for Sharing program goes directly to families through partnerships with corporations, schools, congregations, and communities.

This program is heavily dependent upon passionate and life-changing volunteers like you. If you or your team would like to help feed millions in our communities across Georgia, visit and attend our next packing event or learn how to host your own and we’ll come to you!

Community Kitchens

We are committed to meeting both the cyclical and immediate needs of our neighbors by providing warm and nutritious meals for any who are hungry and providing safe and secure environments to cultivate a stronger community, and access resources. For this reason, we have a network of community kitchens that provide our neighbors with both.
