Welcome to Feed the City

vertOur Mission

To impact the lives and restore hope to others in the surrounding community by providing food during the holiday seasons.


Our Vision

To build a self-sufficient community based food program to help support families in need by providing healthy meals all year round to the diverse population that we serve.


Our History

Feed the City began in 1997 out of a request from our food bank clients to get a basket of food for Thanksgiving with specific needs for that meal. We gave out about a dozen baskets that year and each year it has continued to grow. In 2011 over 1,700 families received food for Thanksgiving meal.

In 2015, Feed the City surpassed a HUGE milestone! Feed the City has now fed over 103,000 people since 1997!

The future looks bright for Feed the City and Middle Georgia as we seek to continue to grow. Our goal for next year is to feed 5,000 families in and around Houston County, GA!
