The Green Thumb Foundation


Our purpose is to feed the hungry.

What We Do:

We host charity picnics at Piedmont Park in Atlanta for the hungry to attend. The charity picnic's location has been strategically chosen to ensure the convenience of public transportation nearby. Delicious barbecue food and ice-cold beverages is provided to all attendees.

What You Can Do: 

It's nothing more heart warming than seeing everyone involved! Not only will you feel great about your contribution to the Green Thumb foundation but you'll benefit families in need! How can you contribute? Your presence and your donation!

  • Charcoal
  • Soda (cans)
  • Condiments
  • Paper plates
  • Water (Bottles)
  • Chips (Snack bags)
  • Anything you feel picnic-suitable
  • Your time; The most important thing!

The Green Thumb Foundation needs a team and your efforts will pay off in all aspects!
