Welcome to Georgia Citizens Coalition on Hunger!


In December 1974, the Georgia Citizens’ Coalition on Hunger (Hunger Coalition)was founded as a statewide coalition of concerned citizens. Representatives from civic organizations, labor unions and the church realized that thousands of children and adults were experiencing serious conditions of malnutrition and nutrition related health problems. A statewide conference was held and it was unanimously agreed upon that something needed to be done to address the conditions of hunger that exist in our state.
