We provide free food to residents of Cherokee County, Georgia, who have a legitimate need of food. Sometimes that need might mean a one-time visit, or possibly a once-a-month visit. If you find yourself juggling your income for medications, housing, and food, come see us.
In 2019, Never Alone served 5,027 families, representing 16,155 individuals, and distributed 220.50 tons of food. That’s a lot of Corn Flakes! Yet in Georgia, one in six children go to bed hungry each night. At Never Alone, we stretch every donated dollar into eight. Let’s say that another way — The Atlanta Food Bank gives us $9.00 worth of food for every $1.00 we give them. That means that a single $25.00 donation supplies us enough food to provide 100 meals to feed the hungry!! Let’s make every dollar count to stamp out hunger in our own community.
Volunteers are the heartbeat of Never Alone. If you have spare time — and want to make a difference in your community — please check out our Volunteer Opportunities to find your niche.
The Food Pantry
The Food Pantry & Warehouse is where all the action is. A volunteer will usually help date food items, stock the shelves, assist with client intake and shopping, and help with basic clean-up and organization. These opportunities only occur during normal Food Pantry and Office hours. Visit the Volunteer page to learn more.
Each $1.00 donated, yields $9.00 worth of food from The Atlanta Food Bank. However, some things we cannot secure, so we depend on community donations. A food drive volunteer will organize a drive from the ground up at their place of business, at their church, at their school, or in their community.
The old cliche that many hands make light work is so true. Some of our outreach events and fundraising projects require a team effort. We welcome families, small groups, community groups, school groups, and youth groups during these times. This is a great way to give back to the community.
Throughout the year Never Alone hosts numerous events for either fund raising or just to love on our clients. Examples might include the Never Walk/Run Alone 5K, Ladies Event, Lantern Festival & Parade, and Thanksgiving Assistance.
