We are very proud to share that our 2014 effort has surpassed all previous years feeding over 5 thousand humans- one plate at a time. We had over 125 volunteers, many of which were college students who add time into their holiday time while at home visiting their relatives. We could not be happier, this year we have partnered with the Effie Foundation to create more events and continue spreading our reach throughout the state of Georgia.
We are very proud to share that over 600 volunteer hours were recorded during this years Christmas event. Our volunteers prepared and cooked over 1500 pounds of poultry donated by our community partners, House of Raeford in North Carolina. This year our Christmas dinner included, Rotisserie Roasted turkey with gravy, home made macaroni and cheese, a traditional bread & sage stuffing and a bottle of Nice purified water. Our collective efforts included the help of over 70 teen aged youth and over 40 adults. Together we were able to feed 2850 friends in four cities of Georgia. We also donated 1300 portions of Rotisserie Roasted turkey and dressing to the Fort Street United Methodist Church in Atlanta. Thanks to so many for their donations and volunteer time which helped our nonprofit organization provide the largest number of meals served in our communities in our history.

Two of the founders children (Oscar Antonio La Madrid IV, 15 & Daniela Rosalia La Madrid 13) were interviewed by Fox Five News on a cold afternoon on December 28th in downtown Atlanta. They helped organize, prepare and cook the meal that would be served in the streets of Athens, Atlanta, Gainesville, & Lawrenceville Georgia.
Our mission is to help our fellow humans by providing adequate resources and mobilizing our local efforts to provide hot meals to those less fortunate in our communities. This promotes altruistic youth into positive adults and provides an awakening experience to our recipients to know someone cares for a better tomorrow.
