Matthew 25 Resource 4/6/10-American's Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia (Savannah)

Primarily, America's Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia serves as the warehouse and distribution center for our collaboration of partner non-profits. We pick up or receive truckloads of food that are donated daily by local and national grocers, businesses, and individuals. Second Harvest inspects, sorts, and stocks donated items in our 30,000 square foot warehouse. Donations are supplemented with purchased items. Fresh and non-perishable products are distributed to more than 300 nonprofit agencies in a 21-county service delivery area that includes both urban and rural communities. Our partner agencies include food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, domestic abuse facilities, senior centers and daycare centers for low-income children.

The mission of the food bank is to feed the hungry by distributing nutritious food to non-profit agencies and at risk elderly and youth, to assist in disaster relief, and work towards long term solutions to end the cycle of poverty and hunger. Our statement of purpose is "Utilizing food and education to improve lives and create a hunger-free community".
