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.
