The 12th Annual Atlanta Interfaith Hunger Seder, previously known as the Atlanta Community Hunger Seder, will be April 20, 2022, at 6 p.m. Each year the Hunger Seder brings organizations and people of all faiths together to learn about food insecurity in our community and discover practical and impactful responses within reach of all area residents.
This year’s event has been renamed and will, for the first time, be located outside the perimeter, to emphasize the broader geographical and interfaith appeal of the program. Rabbi Larry Sernovitz will again provide inspiration, humor and insight by leading the seder, this year at his congregation, Temple Kol Emeth, at 1415 Old Canton Road in Marietta. Rabbi Sernovitz will be joined by special guest and keynote presenter Bill Bolling, founder and executive director of the Atlanta Community Food Bank from 1979 to 2015, and founder and board chair of Food Well Alliance – just two among a lifetime of achievements. Bolling will bring his experience and ongoing passion as an anti-hunger activist to the seder by encouraging attendees to “Celebrate the Good and Face the Challenges” while looking at food insecurity during this special season.
The Marketplace, from 6 – 6:30, will allow participants to interact with essential local partner organizations and learn how to join in their efforts to equitably and effectively provide healthy, nutritional food to those struggling with food insecurity in and around our city.
Beginning at 6:30, the seder program, keynote and breakout sessions will be followed by a thoughtful, meticulously curated and delicious kosher meal by yum! catering.
The interfaith community of Cobb County and all in the greater Atlanta area are invited to reserve a seat at the Atlanta Interfaith Hunger Seder table to take part in this meaningful event to highlight the food justice work that occurs continuously in and around Atlanta.
