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.

Lutheran Resource in Response to Gun Violence

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, saddened by the all-too-frequent occurrences of gun violence in the U.S., invites you on a journey of prayer, scripture, stories, and church teachings with this resource, A 60-Day Journey Towards Justice in a Culture of Gun Violence - an ELCA Resource  Through daily observances, it calls us to work toward the prevention of gun violence as people of God who strive for justice and peace in all the world. It may be used for individual reflection, group Bible study, adult education sessions, and congregational daily devotions. This began on June 16 but can be used at any time.
