Grateful for Food Pantry Expansion
Thanks to a generous gift from the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Emmaus House recently doubled the size our food pantry. This expansion makes it possible for us to offer a client choice model that allows participants to choose the groceries they need, much like most of us do when we go to the grocery store. We now offer a greater variety of food such as meat, dairy items, and produce. We are very happy to provide this higher degree of service to our neighbors and are grateful for the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
In June, Emmaus House served 132 households, consisting of 367 household members. In the past year, we have distributed over 30,000 lbs. of food, and we expect to distribute even more in the coming year. Want to get involved?
