Second Helpings Atlanta

Meals with Meaning Atlanta - Community Meal Kit Packing

Project Overview:

Second Helpings Atlanta is a metro-Atlanta nonprofit working to reduce food waste and food insecurity in our community. Learn more about us at https://www.secondhelpingsatlanta.org

For this project, Second Helpings Atlanta is looking for ~30 volunteers to work alongside SHA staff to assemble and pack 2,000 meal kits that will be given out for free across Atlanta. The meal kits will help alleviate time and financial burdens by providing recipients with ready-to-prepare complete meals. The kits allow recipients to cook fresh, balanced meals and provide the opportunity for families and communities to connect together over a home-cooked meal.

Through the Meals with Meaning Atlanta program Second Helpings Atlanta and our incredible volunteers will assemble and distribute 2000 four-serving meal kits each week. That’s 8000 meals going to our neighbors in need every single week through this event.
