My favorite non-profit Hosea Feeds the Hungry unveiled its latest initiative called “Hosea Helps” over the weekend. As an Atlanta girl and supporter of all things that’s pretty charitable, I made a point to show up and lend my support. The brunch took place in “The Viewing Room” at the Georgia Pacific Center, located at 133 Peachtree Street, Atlanta GA. Guests of the press enjoyed good breakfast, drinks, and lively conversation.
Hosea Feed the Hungry was started by civil rights legend Minister Hosea Williams many years ago to help Atlanta’s poor. Since 1971 the organization has provided a number of services such as medical support, transportation, nutritional services and more to Atlanta families. It is the goal of the organization to inspire citizens nationwide to lend a hand to those in their communities. The organization that’s responsible for some of the biggest dinners that help the homeless has evolved into an organization that not only feed bellies but feed souls.
Under the leadership of Mr. Afemo Omulani and Mrs. Elisabeth Omulani the charity has exploded with pretty charitable initiatives that includes their big holiday meals, day-to-day feeding the hungry, to job placement, to housing placement, to even helping people get life saving organs. The Hosea Feed the Hungry charity is so much more than supplying can goods it’s about supplying help and redemption.
To kick off the occasion reality/tv host Porsha Williams shared her experience with the organization and being a member of the working poor class. Porsha shared with passion and conviction about how devastating looking rich and being cash-strapped can be on a person’s confidence and psyche. Porsha shared her personal story of being out of work and having to hide her financial problems from the world. She talked about being dressed in the finest of clothes but not having electricity or food to eat. She pleaded with the audience to be a help when it comes to advocating for the rights of poor Americans.
The charity unveiled Hosea Helps as a new way to reach out to the community and let the world know that Hosea Williams is all about feeding the need of the poor and working poor in ATLANTA and beyond. In addition to Porsha Williams of Dish Nation, Demarco Morgan of 11 Alive, and Poetic Performer Hank Stewart, were on hand to show their support. The brunch was powered by Hosea Helps’ top corporate sponsors including Aetna, the title sponsor and Kanner & Pintaluga.
Mrs. Omilami rounded out the day with a passionate call to action motivating Atlanta to help our homeless and be more conscious of the working poor.
