Wholesome Wave is proud to be the beneficiary of this year's Social Hand Up event. 

The Social Hand Up is an event that brings creatives, entrepreneurs, and community members together to provide support and exposure to causes in our city—all while having a good time. 

Whether you do your part through your business, your volunteer work, your art, or even shopping locally--when we give a hand up, it benefits all of us.

Join us for drinks, food, and great people, and help Georgians gain access to fresh, local, healthy food. This year, all proceeds benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia.

Southern Chefs Potluck

  • Inn at Serenbe

 

The 6th Annual Southern Chefs Potluck at Serenbe is a casual Sunday supper benefiting Wholesome Wave Georgia on Sunday, September 13th, 2015.

The Southern Chefs Potluck is a favorite among the Atlanta food community, inviting chefs like Ford Fry, Steven Satterfield, Jay Swift, David Sweeny, Terry Koval, Hilary White and more to come together with our guests and dine family-style in a beautiful open-air pavilion at Serenbe.

In 2014, we raised over $118,000 at the Potluck, for a total impact of $236,000 worth of fresh food to low-income families in Georgia and $236,000 in income for Georgia farmers. This year, we want to do even more good. We need your support to raise $130,000 at the Potluck, so that we can provide $260,000 worth of fresh food to low-income families in Georgia and $260,000 in income for Georgia farmers.

Take the SNAP Challenge!

TAKE THE SNAP CHALLENGE

We challenge you to eat on only $4.17 per day for the week of May 10th-17th, 2015!

By taking the SNAP Challenge and experiencing what life is like for millions of Americans living on the average daily allowance of only $4.17, we hope to raise awareness for alternatives like Wholesome Wave Georgia's programs that support access to healthy food while on SNAP.

While on the challenge, shop at a WWG partner farmers market where SNAP dollars are doubled and you'll find local, fresh, healthy foods at affordable prices. This means that as a SNAP Challenge participant, each time you shop at a WWG partner farmers market, your budget doubles from $4.17 to $8.34/day. That's the magic of Wholesome Wave's Double SNAP Program!
 

Could you feed your family on $4 a day?

In Georgia, almost 2 million people–one in five Georgians–receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or Food Stamp) benefits each month. The average person receives a food stamp allowance of $4.17 a day to purchase food.

Across our state, not only are families and individuals finding it difficult to afford food, they're also having trouble accessing fresh, healthy, food. 

One of Wholesome Wave Georgia's top programs doubles every SNAP dollar from $1 to $2 at nearly 40 partner farmers markets. Through this doubling initiative we increase access to and affordability of fresh, locally produced food for SNAP recipients. This means more healthy food for communities in Atlanta and across the state of Georgia, where healthy food is often sparse, expensive and low-quality, and more money for farmers.
