Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless

Hosea Helps CEO Elisabeth Omilami says Atlanta has a problem with classism — and city leaders often ignore the cries of the working poor and children.

Omilami and her husband, Ofemo Omilami, were guests on Monday’s edition of “Closer Look.”

They talked with program host Rose Scott about several topics, including combating poverty and food insecurity in the metro Atlanta area, their organization’s No Summer Hunger program and how their organization plans to use new government funding secured by Congresswoman Nikema Williams to help expand their organization’s work and distribution center.
