Ways to Volunteer

Looking to give time and talent, or put your faith into action? We’re always looking for extra hands and resources to support our hunger relief and housing operations.
Last year, we were able to offer:
30000 +
SuperPacks

(food for the weekend)

350 +
weekly hot meals

served from WCK and Trinity Table

5500 +
children lunches

(and more!) during
summer months

There is always more work to be done, so we need your help!

Help kids stay nourished all summer.

Children who rely on school-provided meals are often at risk of food insecurity over summer break. Our Smart Lunch Smart Kid program serves approximately 7,000 kids across 100 sites in Georgia, and volunteers make it possible! We’re looking for volunteers to help pack or deliver meals.

 

 

PACK

You can sign up to volunteer in our Atlanta volunteer center by clicking here. We also welcome drop-offs if you prefer to pack boxes from home; you can find instructions here or reach out to Santia Moore with any questions.

 

 

DELIVER

We need drivers to deliver SuperPacks (meal packs for kids) to our summer feeding sites. Click on the drop-down to find the coordinator in your local area and get in touch.
