Our program this past Monday, June 7, was presented by Jennifer Barnes, co-founder of Solidarity Sandy Springs. Their mission is to make sure that no residents in Sandy Springs go hungry. They are a food pantry located in Sandy Springs near I285 and Roswell Rd.
Solidarity Sandy Springs has only been in existence for a couple of years and has already served over 26,000 households. They serve between 100 and 200 households every day.
The community they serve live primarily in the Sandy Springs neighborhoods that have children at Lake Forrest Elementary School and High Point Elementary School. Most of these children are on the subsidized or free lunch programs at these school. Solidarity does not ask for or require any paperwork or documentation to receive food.
Jennifer invites us to come take a tour through the Pantry. Pantry days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (9-12) plus Tuesday afternoon from 5pm to 7pm. Restock days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
They are truly neighbors helping neighbors.
