Hosea Feed the Hungry honors Trayvon Martin

Posted: Updated:

Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless held its annual Back-to-School Jamboree.

Kids received free backpacks filled with school supplies.

They also got clothes, fresh food and health screenings.

The event was dedicated to Trayvon Martin's family.

"What happened when we said that, it changed the atmosphere into a village raising a village of children. We served almost 2,000 children today," said CEO Elisabeth Omilami.

The event at Turner Field was also used as a way for the children to express their feelings about the Trayvon Martin case.
