Hosea's passion for those in need is unparalleled. They bring hope and joy to a community in need of a helping hand. Hosea's ability to connect with the community is incredibly heart warming. The kindness they offer and the sense of dignity they bestow makes me proud The Omilami's have found their calling in life and they do a phenomenal job providing meals to those who need them most. Keep up the good work friends.

Having been CEO of a successful non-profit in Atlanta for 15 years, it is with this persepctive that I commend the staff and volunteers of Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless for outstanding service and passion for the work they do. Their reputable holiday Dinners are the Nation's largest sit-down dinners for the hungry and homeless, reflecting the enormous care and compassion in Georgia for those who are struggling. The year round services they provide to prevent homelessness is perhaps not as well known but it should receive much acclaim. Their back to school Jamboree gave over 2,000 school children and hundreds of teachers great help with supplies as well as school clothes, calculators, computers, and boxes of fresh produce to take home. They have wonderful strategic partners in Kroger and Publix, but know our state has more demand than supply for helping keep food available for all of our citizens, therefore more financial support is always welcome. They are diligent with every dollar they receive, and hope to grow their facilities within the next year.

Increase the exposure to the public about their year-round programs and services. Increase their storage capacity and refrigeration space.

The wonderful managers and staff of this organization are at work everyday and they show the rue meaning of LOVE. This organization was the only one out in the winter storm serving soup to those under the bridge who were actually living outside in the storm. I have been with them when they have served survivors of the terrible tornadoes as well as victims of the Atlanta floods and knowing that they are open everyday has been a great help to thousands of people all across Georgia. They visited my school in South Georgia to give food to the food bank there and the staff is always helpful and works with precision.

I met with some of the personnel for this organization, and they were very rude. I love that they help the hungry and homeless, but they also behind closed doors, are very unprofessional. It wasn't the front end staff, it was the coordinator of the feed the hungry Christmas event. Other than some attitude adjustments with this dept mgr, i think they as a help are beyond expectation. But working professionalism needs improvement.

This charity feeds hungry people, not just walk-ins but also children who are provided transportation and the elderly and infirm to whom meals are delivered. The preparation is done with military precision but the hard-working volunteers are all treated with respect.
