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.
