StreetWise's ThanksGIVING Mobile Food Pantry
Lawrenceville, GA – Saturday, November 21, 2020, from 9:00 am till 1:00 pm - StreetWise Georgia will be hosting their monthly Mobile Food Pantry and providing 230 pre-registered low-income families with a turkey and all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal, along with over 150 pounds of food for their household.
For over a decade, StreetWise has provided families and individuals in poverty a one-stop resource center with programs geared toward returning to self-sufficiency. Over 30,000 households have received emergency food, clothing, home, and hygiene items while given an opportunity for training and partner referral services.
"With the impact of COVID-19, we've seen significant growth in the need for food assistance in Gwinnett and surrounding counties. Many of these families have never experienced a need for a hand-up before, which can be stressful. We want to help as many families as possible during this time of uncertainty."
The mission of StreetWise Georgia is to offer the necessary physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual tools to help people stabilize their lives, improve their environment, and move out of a state of dependency into a state of well-being and self-sufficiency.
