WHAT WE DO
promote resiliency

Our Mission:

Creating communities across America to equip those in need of healthy food.

Our Vision:

An America where everyone has the certainty of a healthy meal and the opportunity to connect and grow with their neighbors

How We Serve Families

Joining a Food Security Group stretches families’ food budgets and brings
supportive relationships in a community setting where neighbors get to know each other.
Here’s how it works!

Training Where You Are

Food Security for America will customize a training session for your non-profit, faith institution, or Title One school.

COST:

Host organization reimburses all travel costs plus a $250 training fee.

Organizations outside a 4-hour driving radius of Atlanta will require round-trip airfare.

FORMAT:

Training includes high-level overview of program model and detail of routine procedures. The overview is designed for the broader community, and the detail is for people who would actually set up and run the program.
