Mission Statement

Our mission is to positively impact food insecurity and the environment in the five-county Metropolitan Atlanta area by rescuing surplus food and distributing it to those who are food insecure. We do not accept payment for our services.

Description

We began as a social action project at Temple Sinai, organized by congregant, Guenther Hecht in 2004. SHA grew and became a stand-alone non-profit organization in January 2013.

Our 400+ active and stand-by volunteers drive their cars seven days a week to collect and then deliver this food to over 35 Partner Agencies from over 50 donors. Donors inlcude Trader Joe's, Fresh Market, Target, Whole Foods, Costco, Publix and various others. Partner Agencies include North Fulton Community Charities, Community Assistance Center, The Atlanta Mission, and agencies serving abused mothers and children, senior citizens and others.
