As we eagerly await the start of a new baseball season, the Atlanta Braves have been working their way through the Southeast giving back and meeting fans along the way with the Braves Caravan. Today, they made their stop at the Atlanta Community Food Bank, volunteering with staff in the Product Rescue Center (PRC) and on the grocery floor.
Last week, we held the second of two Youth Summit programs of the summer. A group of 17 students, each from different counties in Georgia, gathered to learn and witness the reality of hunger, and to come up with ideas to help fight it. As they got to know one another, a bond was formed and they really came together to serve the community.
See this fantastic group of volunteers in front of all those boxes? They put them together—all 925 Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) boxes—in three hours! That’s 17,883 meals! Amazing job!
