Elisabeth Omilami

This last Saturday before Thanksgiving, I reached out to Elisabeth Omilami, President and CEO of Hosea Helps about the organization's 50th year serving our community members experiencing food and home insecurity. Hosea Helps is a mainstay, and they do it all with donations from the community. 

Saturday morning at 7am Kiplyn Primus speaks  with Elisabeth Omilami, CEO of Hosea Helps formerly known as Hosea Feeds the Hungry, as the organization continues to expand their reach beyond the "dinner season." Ms. Omilami, the daughter of civil rights leader Hosea Williams, also shares her memories of Julian Bond.

Hosea Feed The Hungry And Homeless has been helping people in the Atlanta Metro area for 44 years.  The organization, originally created and driven by the late Hosea Williams, is now headed by Elisabeth Omilami and her husband Afemo.  Elisabeth Omiliami talked with Rob Maynard on the WCLK Public Affairs Block about Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless initiatives, including Thursday's Thanksgiving event at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Hosea Feed the Hungry extends their summer efforts of helping working families and those families who are less fortunate by hosting their annual Back to School Jamboree. The annual event will be held on Sunday, July 13, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. in the Turner Field Red parking lot.

This event comes just in time for families as they begin to plan for the end of summer and beginning of a new year at school. The event is open to all families and the admission is absolutely free. Children will receive a backpack filled with school supplies.

WCLK's Fonda Smith will be filing reports Monday morning with updates from the annual Hosea Feed The Hungry MLK Jr Day Festival Of Services at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park.  In the run up to Monday's event,  they can still use contributions from supporters.  If you would like to pitch in at the last minute as part of this annual King Day service event, reach out to HFTH by clicking here.
