25 Years of Serving our Neighbors in Need.
Times have changed but this has not: people are hungry and need help. Families; seniors; children; people in all kinds of challenging circumstances. That’s where we come in.
We began because people needed help.
In 1998, Dr. Ken Herrmann, a pediatrician at the CDC and member of St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, realized that many of the health issues children were facing were related to them being hungry. Very quickly, a small continues to serve our most vulnerable neighbors with compassion, joy, and respect for the dignity of all. Our commitment to serving families and households suffering from food insecurity has never waivered. And we continue to serve because of the support each year from hundreds of our neighbors that share our passion for serving those in need.
Different decade; same commitment to serve.
In 2010, THCA assisted 2,319 families and provided 2,522 bags
holding 19,000 of pounds. So far, in 2023 we have served over 15,000 households with over 790,000 pounds of food! The numbers we serve has grown. But our calling is the same – working together to feed those in need.
From founder, Dr. Ken Herrmann:
“I can’t believe that it has been 25 years since the THCA launched the vision to help provide food and financial assistance to our neighbors in need in the northeast Atlanta area. It has been heartwarming to me to see how this ministry as grown and flourished over the years to serve those in need. ”
With your help, we can continue to meet the needs of a growing number of our neighbors in need.
It was the vision of those that started it all 25 years ago and remains our vision today: THCA brings people together to help our most vulnerable neighbors. We could not do it without the amazing generosity of our donors, volunteers, faith-based partners, businesses, schools; indeed, the entire community. As we launch this year’s annual campaign, we hope you’ll consider supporting us again as we begin our NEXT 25 years of helping our neighbors in need.
