Sustainativity is proud to complete our first community partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank! Established in Savannah in 1981, Second Harvest serves as the food safety net for tens of thousands of children, senior citizens, low-income families, and people with disabilities who are at-risk for hunger throughout southeastern Georgia. They work diligently to feed the hungry by distributing nutritious food to non-profit agencies and at-risk elderly and youth. Programs include Brown Bag for the Elderly, Culinary Arts at Grace’s Kitchen, Kids Cafe, and Mobile Food Pantry. These programs are designed to provide hunger relief to those most vulnerable. Last year, Second Harvest food bank provided more than 8.1 million meals (more than 9.6 million pounds of food) to hungry people in our area.
Sustainativity provided a comprehensive lighting retrofit for Second Harvest’s facility. Unlike a simple cash donation, the lighting retrofit will provide ongoing annual savings for years to come. In fact, the savings from the lighting update will provide an additional 10,000 meals for Second Harvest to feed the hungry every year.
