Feed the Hungry holds outreach meeting

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah Feed the Hungry is reaching out to churches, organizations and public agencies to unite to fight poverty. The meeting is called A Call to Action 2014, which focuses on the growing number of homeless camp populations in Savannah and the needs of the working poor to help those in need get out of poverty long term.  

"We are focusing on putting poverty on the front burner. It's a new focus of not just giving bags of groceries out, but growing our own groceries, empowerment in the areas of employment and economics to get people out of having the need to get a bag," said Rev. Carl Gilliard, CEO of Feed the Hungry.

Savannah Feed the Hungry is hosting an empowerment zone to help those looking to for help on Feb. 20 at the Savannah Civic Center.
