Our Story

About Us

TSP is a grassroots 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are a network of volunteers who make and deliver fresh, homemade sandwiches to people experiencing food insecurity throughout metro Atlanta. As a whole, we believe in the power of community, the strength of kindness, and the fundamental right to receive nourishment. 

Early in 2020, as we witnessed Covid-19 change our lives in a profound and enduring way, a group of friends began making sandwiches to help those most affected by the pandemic. For our neighbors already living with food insecurity, the results were devastating. Supply chain issues, causing food prices to spiral, made it even more difficult to procure nutrient-dense, high-protein foods.

As word of the project spread, neighbors and the wider community joined the effort. Soon, the group was making thousands of sandwiches each week and delivering them to non-profit organizations throughout the area. Our team also began donating fresh fruit and protein bars to our recipients.

To reach people in need of food, TSP leaders made the decision to set up host homes to offer convenient drop-off locations for volunteers to deliver sandwiches. TSP delivers our donations to small non-profit groups that in turn deliver food to areas where people cannot access food pantries. The reasons people cannot get to a grocery store or food pantry are complicated, but we are reaching them with the help of our partner organizations and our dedicated volunteers. To date, TSP hosts approximately thirty collection locations and has donated over 850,000 sandwiches and thousands of pounds of fruit and protein bars to more than sixty recipient organizations. 

Our Board

We grew this organization as a collaborative group of volunteers. We are a working board comprised of 15 at-large members and an Executive Board: Lisa Hiles, Marcy Louza, Nancy Miller, Jeanne Román, Vicki Tropauer, and Marni Beckerman. More information about our board may be obtained by emailing us at (subject line: Board information attn: Marcy Louza). TSP also has an advisory board of experienced individuals in non-profit operations.

Hunger & Food Insecurity in Georgia

A major goal of The Sandwich Project is to educate our community regarding food insecurity. Close to a quarter of Georgia's children do not have enough to eat. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the percentage of Georgians experiencing food insecurity has risen from 13% to 16%. Surprisingly, more than a third of these people are ineligible for food assistance programs in the state.
