About Feed the Boro:
Feed The Boro is a non-profit organization that coordinates feeding residents of Bulloch, Candler and Evans county. The organization was started 27 years ago in Bulloch County. The goal was to “reach people that may not have a warm Thanksgiving meal available on Thanksgiving day but just as important to give a moment of human kindness and sense of belonging and community to people that may be alone or experiencing a sense of depression during what is for others a time of family and celebration”. When able, the organization holds Food Drop Events during other times of the year as well.
