Second Helpings Atlanta is a nonprofit food rescue organization whose mission is to reduce hunger and food waste in the Metro Atlanta area by rescuing surplus food and distributing it to those in need. With a community of over 300 volunteers, SHA serves as the link between a network of food donors and partner agencies who feed the hungry daily.
In 2020, SHA diverted over 1.9 million pounds of surplus food from landfills and delivered almost 1.6 million nutritious meals to those in need through food rescue. In addition, SHA provided 400,000 prepared meals to our partner agencies through their new meal delivery program.
SHA recognizes that a key to their success is offering a rich, rewarding volunteer experience that has a big impact in the community without impacting people’s busy schedules. SHA continues to use the power of small actions to transform people’s lives.
