Nonprofit Partner: Second Helpings Atlanta

By Madelon Morford

For this social activism project, each student was tasked with coming up with a slogan that they felt represented and reflected the mission of their organization, Second Helpings Atlanta. The mission behind Second Helpings Atlanta is to “drive out hunger 1 mile at a time”. Their website states:

90 minutes a month, that’s how long it takes to pick up and deliver a car load of nutritious food to those in need. In December 2017 Second Helpings volunteers had rescued over 1.4 million meals for hungry people in Atlanta, increasing their meals 13% since 2016.

The three driving methods that Second Helpings focuses on for driving positive change are: 1. Communicate, Convene, Collaborate, 2. Advocate, 3. Research and Innovate. By educating, informing and mobilizing stakeholders, the volunteers are able to ensure that all Georgia families receive the economic, community, and health benefits that are important, especially during the prenatal stage of pregnancy and the first five years of a child’s life. Through advocacy, the organization works for effective policies that support high-quality learning and healthy development. All of this is done through the support of evidence-based practices and research.
