Elizabeth Savin

Second Helpings Atlanta’s dual mission—to reduce hunger and eliminate food waste—makes the organization a perfect fit for Elizabeth Savin. Passionate about food and nutrition, Elizabeth is equally committed to environmental awareness. As SHA’s Community Engagement Coordinator, she leads Food for Thought programs that educate the community about hunger and food waste. As well, she oversees volunteer and community events.

Before moving to Atlanta, Elizabeth volunteered with a food rescue nonprofit in her native Pittsburgh. “That opportunity opened my eyes to the idea that by reducing food waste we are reducing hunger,” she said.

After graduating from Wake Forest University, where she majored in business and environmental studies, Elizabeth worked in the green consulting industry, and managing volunteers on a small urban farm.

At Second Helpings Atlanta, Elizabeth welcomes the opportunity to share her passion and knowledge in diverse community settings. “I hope to cultivate the next generation of volunteers and spark interest in reforming the food distribution system in the U.S.,” she adds.

Spending time in nature is Elizabeth’s passion. She is a proud foodie who attributes her healthy appetite to her avid running habit.

“Knowing that the work I do immediately benefits people and the planet is my source of motivation.”
