Central Night Shelter:
Central Night Shelter serves both the hungry and homeless of Atlanta by providing them with a shelter for the night as well as functioning as a food pantry to distribute food during the day. Volunteers can serve overnight to assist people in need in the shelter, or they can help during the day to provide food to people. Working with the shelter is an overall enriching experience, and it is a partner that we will continue to work with in the future.
Atlanta Community Food Bank:
Atlanta Community Food Bank works to provide food to food pantries, ministries, and directly to the people of Atlanta. They work to eradicate hunger from the streets of Atlanta by providing access to cheap, healthy food. In working with the food bank we would be processing donated food, organizing shelves, working in community gardens, etc.
