Adopt a Meal for Kate’s Club
Kate’s Club empowers children facing life after the death of a parent or sibling. They create healing communities through recreational and therapeutic group programs, education, and advocacy.
You can serve the children at Kate’s Club by providing a meal for one of their family programs. The size of each meal depends on which program and can be between 45 – 75 people. The responsibilities of the meal are divided into three slots. The weekend Clubhouse Programs are typically sandwiches or pizza, plus whole fruits, cookies and chips, while weekday meals are traditionally warm meals ranging from tacos or pasta to chicken casseroles or chili. Be mindful of vegetarian families and meals must be nut free and kid friendly. This is a great project for multiples families (neighbors, co-workers, etc.) To learn more, click here.
Virtual Projects for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA)
The families with patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta greatly appreciate donations that help them with their stay and allow them to focus on recovery. By creating family care/laundry kits or meal bags we can help ease the burden of unexpected visits by providing them with necessary items that they will use throughout their visit. This project is in collaboration with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. We have how-to guides that provide all of the details necessary to complete these projects:
Prepare a Meal for Youth at Covenant House
Covenant House Georgia is more than a shelter. They provide more than a bed and a meal for youth experiencing homelessness and escaping trafficking; they show unconditional love and give comprehensive support so that their youth can and will realize their fullest potential.
How can you help? By preparing a meal Covenant House is in need of volunteers to prepare and share a meal every day of the week. This is a wonderful opportunity for families, corporate groups, church groups and individuals to impact the lives of homeless youth. Fifty-seven percent of homeless youth spend at least one day a month without food, so even a simple meal can begin the healing process for a young person.

Kits for Helping Mamas

Volunteers can help virtually by creating a variety of kits for newborns through 12 years old. Click here for more details and to register.
Meal Brigade for Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC)
At this time, due to the medically fragile nature of the families the ARMHC serves and the health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, all on-site volunteer opportunities have been suspended. However volunteers can still support these families by providing a meal that is individually boxed and commercially prepared from a caterer, grocery store deli, or delivered from a restaurant establishment, please click here for more information.
