When I was awarded the grant I served about 15 children in Atlanta, GA. Now, I serve hundreds of children in Hampton, GA. I have expanded to offer free food to food insecure children, serving supper and late night snacks before they go home at night. I am finalizing plans to open mentoring programs in Dekalb County, Fulton County, and Gwinnett County, GA for the upcoming academic year starting in August. Keep in mind that it has been less than a year since receiving the grant. TPP has allowed me to share my passion, and has given me the platform for others to see my work and want to be a part of it.
