Each Thursday during the school year, an Agape partner like yourself sponsors one weekend of fresh produce for 40 families we serve.

For many of these families, this weekly fresh produce program provides the only fresh produce they will have all week.

This year, we gained a generous partnership with Royal Food Service, who has offered to provide and ship our full grocery list for only $200 per week. This sponsorship provides a new option for you to support this program. For more information, see Option One below.

To sponsor a Fresh Produce for Families for one or more weeks, there are two options:

Option One: Discount Drop Ship by Royal Food Service

Poor nutrition negatively affects the overall health of a child by impeding their fresh-producebehavioral and cognitive development, as well as their ability to perform in school and socialize effectively. Thank you for helping Agape teach our kids about healthy lifestyles and good nutrition; and that their community cares about them!

This program was started in 2012 by a generous grant from The Friedman Supporting Foundation through The Jewish Philanthropic Fund for Greater Atlanta.
