The HFTH Christmas dinner gave many families more than just a hot meal, they left with warm hearts. From the loving staff to the seasoned volunteers, the spirit of Christmas was definitely felt throughout the Georgia World Congress Center. Guests were offered many services other than dinner, including a clothing care center, kids corner, hot showers, legal services, prayer and counseling center, medical services, and a hair salon.

The annual Christmas event began in 1970 when the late Rev. Hosea L. Williams fed 100 homeless men.

About Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless

Since its founding in 1971, Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless Food (HFTH), a Christian international aid organization, distributed more than $3.0 billion in food, clothing, medical, educational, toiletries, furniture and cleaning supplies to 16 Georgia counties, three states and to the Philippines, the Ivory Coast and Uganda. The organization maintains an average administrative overhead of 14 percent -- ensuring the poor receive 86 percent of all donations.

Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless follows the principle that education and self-help must fortify charity work so recipients learn to break the cycle of poverty. HFTH prevents homelessness by providing rent, mortgage, and utility assistance, financial literacy and GED classes, distribution of school supplies and book bags to children, annual Christmas children’s party, intensive case management and support to programs to teach recipients how to develop small businesses and co-ops while providing leadership training to independent farmers.
