ROHA is a nonprofit organization working with individuals and families to end their homelessness in Atlanta, Georgia. ROHA understands that there are thousands of homeless men, women, and children who are unsheltered in Atlanta and go day-by-day without eating. ROHA understands that this is a critical need and is helping in this fight by providing sack lunches to the homeless community through a program called “Lunch on Wednesday” (LOW). This initiative began in January 2019 and to date has provided over 2,000 free lunches to homeless individuals in the city on the first Wednesday of each month. Each lunch sack contains water, fruit, chips and a sandwich. Not only do we want to provide lunch to the community we want to increase our giving to include hygiene kits, health screenings, and clothes to the underserved.
