Juneteenth: Celebrating Freedom, Feeding the Future

Juneteenth, a day of joy and reflection, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. It’s a time to celebrate resilience, culture, and the ongoing fight for true equality.

While we celebrate freedom won, food insecurity remains a critical issue facing many Black communities. In fact, 27% of Black individuals in South Georgia experience food insecurity. (See Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap data here.)

Juneteenth is a chance for building a future where everyone has access to nourishing food.

Second Harvest is dedicated to fighting hunger in our community. This Juneteenth, we encourage you to join us in the fight against food insecurity. Here are a few ways you can help:

Let’s commemorate Juneteenth not just with food, but with a commitment to ensuring everyone has enough to eat. Together, we can build a more nourished community for everyone.
