11th Annual Hosea Feed the Hungry 'Back to School' Jamboree

UntitledHosea Feed the Hungry hosted its 11th annual back-to-school jamboree at Turner Field Sunday.
Several hundred children and their parents lined up at the Turner Field blue lot as Hosea Feed the Hungry organization provided underprivileged children with backpacks, school supplies, health screenings, eye exams, food and clothes to prepare for the upcoming school year.
Families lined up as early as 5 a.m. to register their children and by 10 a.m., the line stretched halfway around the parking lot, and eager parents stood on the hot asphalt as the sun baked the lot.
The day before, dozens attended the annual Hosea Feed The Hungry Brunch that celebrated new changes and expansions in the program. Hosea Helps 365 will now aim to help an additional 3,500 people every year to include reading programs, youth outreach and expand its homeless housing. The Back to School Jamboree successfully registered more than sixty children for school.
Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless was founded in 1971. The group has distributed more than 3 billion in food, clothing and medical supplies.
