Savannah’s Salvation Army (TSA) has partnered with local agency, Feed The Hungry and Georgia State Representative Carl Gilliard from Garden City to host a ‘Feed Our City’ event this weekend. 3,000 meals will be available to those in need, as well as food for their animal companions, this Saturday, May 9 starting at noon at TSA’s Community Center, 3000 Bee Rd. in Savannah.
Socially distanced food preparation will be undertaken by volunteers the day before the event, at TSA’s Community Center kitchen. Meals will be distributed via curbside pickup on May 9, in line with US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
“I am elated that Feed the Hungry is returning ‘home,’ since the first holiday dinner we ever hosted was with The Salvation Army. We are glad to be partnering with the Salvation Army as they have worked diligently to serve the community during this Coronavirus pandemic,” said Rep. Carl Gilliard.
“We have come together through great team work to help those who need it most at this time, and we are looking forward to providing the most vulnerable with a comforting meal.”
“We are so excited to partner with Feed the Hungry and Representative Carl Gilliard for this wonderful event! We have a great history and natural synergy in serving those that need us most, especially during these financially stressful times,” said The Salvation Army of Savannah’s Major Paul Egan.
