As some of you know, I have launched food programs at the two senior communities where I work as a chaplain to help address food insecurity among the elderly. Our food programs are in partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB). We started these programs in Feb 2018. Since that time, we have delivered about 100,000 lbs of food to our seniors through our Abundance Food Pantry and Senior Box programs. That's 500 tons of food! Thank you so much for supporting this endeavor.
And...we are gearing up for the ACFB Hunger Walk 2020!!
The money we raise will support our food programs (80%) and the ACFB (20%). Each $1 raised yields about 6 lbs of food, which provides one weekly supplemental bag of nutritious food for the elderly. A $25 gift would supply one senior with supplemental food for nearly half the year! Our seniors select this food from our on-location Abundance Pantry that is stocked through the ACFB.
Every $1 helps, and our seniors (and I) greatly appreciate any support you can offer.
