Second Helpings Atlanta, Inc. (SHA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose vision is to fight hunger in the 5 county Metropolitan Atlanta area by rescuing surplus food and delivering it to those in need. With a team of nearly 400 volunteer drivers, SHA serves as the link between a network of 70+ food donors and more than 45 Partner Agencies providing food assistance and other services.
We began as a social action project in 2004 at Temple Sinai Atlanta, organized by congregants Guenther Hecht, Alli Allen and Shirley Leaderman Bernes. SHA grew and became a stand-alone non-profit organization in January 2013.
Below is our 90 Minute Model in action. Second Helpings Atlanta Volunteers make a huge impact in a very short time.
