Too many children in our own neighborhoods are going hungry EVERY DAY. But there IS a solution, and it starts with you.
At Meals By Grace, we want to alleviate hunger today, but we also want to raise families up to self-sufficiency for tomorrow. We are BY community, FOR community, and our community has so much to give to those in need.

Studies show that factors that contribute to food insecurity can include poverty, lack of access to affordable and healthy food, unemployment, and underemployment.
According to Feeding America, 1 in 7 people in Georgia struggle with hunger, including 1 in 5 children. Food insecurity can have significant negative impacts on a child’s health, development, and academic performance. It can also contribute to long-term health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
Don’t sit on the sidelines of a true pandemic in our world. Support healthy, happy, thriving children by investing your time and treasures where it’s needed most!
