Hosea Feed the Hungry feeds thousands, offers free haircuts

Posted: Updated:

Hosea Feed the Hungry fed 5,000 people for Easter and delivered 3,000 plates to homes.

"Bad things happen to good people and you might be OK today, but tragedy can happen to you tomorrow," said Babblett Smith, an organizer who was once homeless.

The people who attended the event received free haircuts, medical services and enjoyed entertainment.

"I had to go and stay in a homeless shelter. I had displaced children. We were all displaced here and there," said Smith.

Hosea Feed the Hungry has fed people for 47 years. Volunteers cooked food on Saturday in the kitchen at the DeKalb County Jail.

"I have a home. My home is furnished … and we have food in our pantry. … I'm working on some more things," said Smith.
