The holiday season is upon us and Cynthia is talking to Elizabeth Omilami about all the programs Hosea Feed The Hungry has prepared for this special time of the year. Hosea Feed The Hungry has given back to the country for more than 40 years and will continue to carry out this tradition with dinners for Atlanta’s homeless and hungry from now until April. Elizabeth Omilami leads this organization to provide services for some 50,000 people per year. Now in the midst of November and facing Thanksgiving, Hosea Feed The Hungry gives hope and help through their programs to people in our own neighborhoods.
Cartlanta Recycling Program is an initiative by the city of Atlanta to clean up the city and being the process of going green.

White, the Deputy Commissioner for City of Atlanta department of public works, is in the studio giving Cynthia the initial plans for the program and how you can lend a hand.
