Feeding GA Families has partnered with several schools and day care centers in Georgia to provide food/snack kits to the kids.

This is in addition to the homeless food and hygiene kits that we give out every month.

Thank you to Midwest Food Bank for the food that goes into each kit. And, thanks to Larry's Goods for the personal hygiene items. Special thanks to Amazon for selling individual and trial size items that fit perfectly in the kits.

We have the opportunity to partner with two additional food banks at a cost. One provides fresh produce. The other provides fresh fruit and non-perishable food. All donations go towards the purchase of food for the Free Market.

We're getting ready for the fall and winter seasons. As we prepare, monetary donations are driven primarily for fresh fruits and vegetables in our healthy eating campaign. We look forward to using the donations we receive to store more food and provide additional services to the families, individuals, seniors, students, and veterans that attend our Free Market every week.

Thanks to all of your generous donations, this past week we had fresh fruit, vegetables, sodas and more at our Free Market. Produce included: Avocados, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Corn, Cucumbers, Limes, Oranges, Plantains, and potatoes. We're making our next big push to fund the summer season. Each dollar goes a long way to assist each family in need.

Thank you all for your generous donations. Each week we are able to give something new to the families that shop our free market food pantry.

This past week we had Rainbow Trout and the week prior we had chicken wings as our meat options.

Each week we will feature the item(s) that Onsite donations helped us to purchase for that week's free market.

We're looking to expand our fresh food offerings. Each donation made through Gofundme.com (our goal amount) will help to assist over 500 families.
