Let’s talk about your involvement with The
Two Georgias Initiative. Has that maybe
helped in any way as you all navigate the
CH: It’s helped us a lot because we are so in
tune with the other recipients of this grant.
With the monthly calls with the North
Georgia recipients, and also our email
newsletter with the whole Two Georgias
group, they always forward us new
information, and we can kind of feed off
each other with what everyone is doing in
their own individual communities. For
instance, last month, there was a food
distribution giveaway that they were doing
down in Cook county, and they gave us the opportunity to sign up for it, but unfortunately it was already
filled up before we got our chance. But it was details like that that let us know we can have the
opportunity to have that happen in Hancock because we are in the middle of a food desert that has only
have one grocery store with a limited stock.
Mrs. Annie Ingram, what has it been like navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and keeping up with all of
the work that you all do?
AI: Sometimes it gets very stressful; sometimes it’s the best that we can do to do whatever we have to do.
For me, being at home has been a little stressful. But with Chambreé’s help and the other ladies that are
there, I think we’ve navigated it pretty thoroughly. With their help, the job has been really great, and
everything has been getting done that we were trying to get done. Maybe at a slower pace, but with the
same enthusiasm and the same energy and the same thoroughness to get it done.
