We can't thank our friends at Passion City Church enough for their support of MUST with their #LOVEATLANTA week! Their volunteers made a huge impact and our neighbors in need are better for it. Thank you to everyone from Passion City who gave of their time to make their community better.
The Atlanta-metro area has one of the fastest growing poverty rates in the United States, leaving children and families in our communities going hungry. Because of private donations of food and money, MUST and MUST Neighborhood Pantries give away an astounding ton of food a day to those in need. Households may receive food free of charge.
Anyone can receive bakery items daily donated by local grocery stores. In addition to our Food Pantries, MUST operates the Loaves and Fishes Community Kitchen which feeds about 100 hungry men, women and children everyday at lunch. Breakfast and dinner are also served to 72 residents at the Elizabeth Inn shelter. The residents are provided a "to go" lunch during the workweek. Feeding neighbors in need has always been a core component of MUST Ministries and remains a constant reminder of the miracle of the loaves and fishes.
