Your neighbors are hungry. It’s startling, but true. In the 14-county area served by the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia and our dedicated partner agencies, about 13% of our neighbors live with food insecurity. That means that they don’t know where their next meal is coming from. They may forego eating their own meals so that their children don’t have to go to bed hungry. They may have to choose between food and rent, food and utility bills, food and gasoline, food and prescriptions. No one should face those wrenching choices.
The good news is that you can help them. You can bring joy to your neighbors in need – and find joy in the simple yet profound act of giving.
It is our mission at the Food Bank to get as much food as we can to as many of our neighbors as need it. We believe there is no more fundamentally human act than feeding someone who is hungry. Every dollar you give provides four meals. Will you help us end hunger in Northeast Georgia?
