In addition to weekly food donation pickups, SHA offers food recovery assistance for surplus food on a one-time basis. Examples of one-time donations include surplus food from a catered event (ie. festival, corporate luncheon, etc) or an organization’s planned philanthropic activity (ie. Feed the Hungry event).
Second Helpings Atlanta works diligently to make sure all of our scheduled routes are managed and completed, our On-Demand donation pickup resources are limited. Therefore, we cannot accommodate One-Time pickup requests for food donations that are under 100 pounds and/or under 48-hours notice. In these cases, we strongly support your intention to connect surplus food to the community and encourage you to use our Partner Agency list to locate an agency near you. Also note that most agencies have limited weekend hours.
