HelloFresh, who already is a food donor partner with Second Helpings, provides the ingredients to assemble two different recipe kits each week, and Pratt Industries provides the packaging.
“We are tapping into the amazing SHA network to gather at least 20 volunteers every Wednesday morning at our warehouse on the Westside to put the kits together. Then, in the afternoon, we will deliver the kits to a few different locations in Atlanta where they will be distributed to residents who need help accessing fresh food,” said Andrea Jaron. executive director. “As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic intensified food insecurity over the past year, and a recent study from The Fresh Food Access Report states that nearly 25% of Atlanta residents are not within a half-mile of fresh food. The goal of the Meals with Meaning program is to provide access to fresh, nutritious food, distributing over 400,000 meals through 2022.”
