The Effects of COVID-19

on Hugs & Hope Community Table and the Precious Families in the Community


We are seeing an increase of 20 to 25 new families come through our food distribution line every week.  No precious child, sweet senior or hard-working family member should ever have to wonder where their next meal is coming from.  Together with your help, we can have the food necessary to feed them.


With so many families affected by the loss of jobs due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the families we are now serving on a weekly basis has tripled in number.  Because hunger impacts children, seniors, and so many working & non-working families in our communities we find ourselves purchasing more and more food every week.  Although we receive some aid through wonderful donations, we are in immediate need of much more assistance.


Your Support is Needed 

and Appreciated

Join us in our mission to serve free meals and distribute free groceries to some of the most vulnerable families in our community.  

Although we can no longer give HUGS we can still spread HOPE through serving EACH family with joy and smiles and virtual hugs!

Our volunteers help with the unloading, sorting, and stocking of food items, preparing meals for our families and preparing and distributing food boxes/bags into the trunks of cars.  We do all that we do with true joy and compassion, serving each family like members of our own!

Opportunities to volunteer: Monday, Wednesday, Friday Mornings: 8 am – 10 am

All volunteers should be at least 16 years of age, without a chaperone and be able to lift 40lbs.

We require all volunteers to have their temperature taken when first checking in to volunteer.  All volunteers should always bring and wear a mask.  We will always have hand sanitizer and gloves available.  We will have no more than 10 volunteers in the building and 15 outside on any given shift.


Sponsor A Truck for A Week

Hugs & Hope Community Table & Food Distribution through Christ First Community Church has been a partner agency with The Atlanta Community Food Bank since August of 2017.  Through this wonderful opportunity with ACFB we purchased 155,556 lbs. of food and fed 4,739 families in need so far this year.   But we are quickly outgrowing the ability to cover the costs associated with purchasing our weekly truck load of food.  So, we need your help.


Would you consider sponsoring one or more trucks loaded with enough food to feed hundreds of children, seniors, and hardworking families?


The cost of one truckload of nutritious food to feed 200-250 families is just $200!


No precious child, sweet senior or hard-working family member should ever have to wonder where their next meal is coming from.


By sponsoring one or more of our

 weekly food trucks

you will be helping

to put that thought out

of their minds.
