AUGUSTA, Ga. -- A local food bank continues to provide for those in need of food assistance, but has added something to its logo. In addition to the logo known well in the community, they have added a tagline of “Feeding Lives Together."
Golden Harvest Food Bank distributed over 14.2 million pounds of food during its 2011 fiscal year. The community has helped through business partnerships, food pantries, food kitchens and volunteering. Golden Harvest is the largest food distributor in a 30-county area. They provide food to more than 400 other nonprofit groups.
In addition to the new look, they have updated their mission. It now reads, “Golden Harvest Food Bank is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit organization that provides quality food and other grocery products to those in need. We do this with local community support through direct service programs, partner agencies and community education about hunger."
