Mission Statement

Our mission is to positively impact food insecurity and the environment in the five-county Metropolitan Atlanta aread by rescuing surplus food and distributing it to those in need. We do no accept payment for our services.

Description

Since inception, Second Helpings volunteers have saved over 3,000,000 pounds of nutritious food from the landfill, and currently average 52,000 pounds rescued monthly. If we assume that each individual recipient would receive 2 pounds of food, then we know we are helping to feed 25,000 people a month. Our 300 active and stand-by volunteers drive their cars seven days a week to collect and then deliver this food to 15 agencies from over 40 donors. Donors inlcude Trader Joe's, Fresh Market, Target, Whole Foods, Costco, Publix and various others. Agencies include North Fulton Community Charities, Community Assistance Center, The Atlanta Mission, and agencies serving abused mothers and children, senior citizens and others.
