Action Ministries to Host Food and Book Drive on MLK Day


Action Ministries’ Smart Lunch, Smart Kid will host a MLK Day of Service on Monday, January 19, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. A team from AmeriCorps VISTA will lead the community effort to make and deliver 500 sack lunches to local children who receive free or reduced-price lunch at school, and who often go without when school is not in session.

Available volunteer slots are full, but Smart Lunch, Smart Kid still needs donations of children’s books to deliver along with lunches and the non-perishable lunch food items below:

  • Canned fruit (16-ounce)
  • Peanut butter (16-ounce)
  • Meat-based soups or stews (24-ounce)

Please deliver donations on Jan. 19 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to the Regional Hunger Relief warehouse located at 2160 Hills Avenue, Suite F, Atlanta, GA  30318-2806 or by appointment with Courtney Jackson at
