"…We appreciate the passion, sense of urgency and desire to help others in our community, but feel that the safety of everyone is of utmost importance. We will assess the situation regularly and if we feel that there are no concerns about safety, we let the community know. If you would like to help us in another way, please make a monetary donation through our website. Every dollar counts and will enable us to provide food for more families in our community. A $10 donation can provide 60 meals for a family in need ...” ~ Frank Sheppard, President and CEO

Stay-At-Home Volunteer Opportunity – Write A Note To A Family in Need:
Golden Harvest is collecting notes of encouragement for families who are struggling during the COIVD-19 crisis. The notes will be included in boxes of emergency food that are distributed across our service area. This is a simple but meaningful way for our community to stay connected and encourage one another during this difficult time.
Because of shelter-in-place orders in effect across Georgia and South Carolina and out of deep concern for your safety, we have shut down all of our on-site volunteer programs at this time.
The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has created a sense of urgency for ATLiens to unite in service. We’re rallying our community to help fight food insecurity and tackling our city’s most pressing needs. Explore how you can help today and ensure all of our neighbors can thrive tomorrow.
Our mission is to investigate and then raise public awareness about the many problems that are facing families and individuals that are at risk of slipping into poverty or that are living in poverty, and then to mobilize financial resources, products and volunteers to solve those problems and stabilize those households.
Our ability to satisfy this unexpected demand is contingent upon an increase in public support, foundations and corporations. We need additional resources for our children and families. These additional resources will enable our team to expand our food distribution quantities to over 200,000 meals in the month April. By the end of 2020, we are projected to serve over 10 million meals to mitigate the rising rate of food insecurity.
Please help us serve over 40,000 – 50,000 meals every week by giving today.
In an effort to help the many at-risk students and their families who do not have enough food during the closing of schools due to the coronavirus, MUST Ministries is coordinating a MUST FOOD Rapid Response program.
