Second Helpings Atlanta is a non-profit food rescue organization whose mission is to eliminate hunger in the Metro Atlanta area by rescuing surplus food and delivering it to those in need.  With a team of over 400 volunteer drivers, SHA is the link between a network of more than 50 donors and the front-line agencies who feed the hungry on a daily basis. SHA is looking for volunteers and new network members.

 

The 90 Minute Model - 365 days a year, our volunteers rescue food from our network of donors, transport it to one of our partner agencies and return home in 90 minutes or less.  Since our first food pick-up in 2004, SHA has collected and distributed over 4.6 million pounds of food, enough food for 3.8 million meals. Volunteers drive once a month.

 

SHA is looking for volunteers to drive a small, refrigerated truck on Tuesday and Thursday mornings to help with some of the larger food rescues.  These routes require a 4 hour commitment and other volunteers will be available to help load and unload the truck. This is a great opportunity to rescue a large quantity of food that will make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

 

To learn more about SHA, visit www.secondhelpingsatlanta.org and contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@secondhelpings.info to  volunteer and to find out ways you can help besides driving.

Prayer from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese

A Prayer for Thanksgiving

For the expanding grandeur of creation, worlds known and unknown, galaxies beyond galaxies, filling us with awe and challenging our imaginations:
We give thanks this day.
For this fragile planet earth, its times and tides, its sunsets and seasons:
We give thanks this day.
For the joy of human life, its wonders and surprises, its hopes and achievements:
We give thanks this day.
For our human community, our common past and future hope,
our oneness transcending all separation,
our capacity to work for peace and justice in the midst of hostility and oppression:
We give thanks this day.
For high hopes and noble causes, for faith without fanaticism,
for understanding of views not shared:
We give thanks this day.
For all who have labored and suffered for a fairer world,
who have lived so that others might live in dignity and freedom:
We give thanks this day.
For human liberty and sacred rites;
for opportunities to change and grow, to affirm and choose:
We give thanks this day.
We pray that we may live not by our fears but by our hopes,
not by our words but by our deeds.
We give thanks this day.

Amen.
