“Thank you to Nickey Gregory and SEPC for partnering with the PAYH to distribute over 1,000 boxes of fresh produce to those in need in our community through the Farmers to Families Food Box Program. We are grateful for your partnership.” ~Victoria Shuman, Advancement Officer, Paul Anderson Youth Home

Our Featured Charitable Partner

For the past few years, SEPC has been the Title Sponsor of the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Strong4Life Superhero Sprint and gives away fresh, free produce to event attendees at Piedmont Park. Since the cancellation of the in-person event this year due to COVID-19, SEPC wanted to find a way to still get produce in the hands of those in the Atlanta community.

This year, we held a drive-thru produce box distribution. SEPC arranged for 2,740 produce boxes to be donated and distributed on August 29th (the same day as the virtual race) at Passion City Church in Atlanta, GA. We are thankful for the generous support from our members who contributed their time, energy, and resources to make this event possible!

During Southern Exposure 2020, SEPC issued The Golden Rule Challenge to exhibitors as well as attendees to share how they serve others for the greater good of our industry and our world. We’d love to continue that challenge by sharing how our members are continuing to #MakeADifference!

Our Sponsors

SEPC sponsors are a vital part of our existence. Simply put, sponsor contributions help us bring more to the table for everyone. Like better networking and education events, fresh talent, and a broader awareness of best practices throughout our industry. And of course, when you help us promote produce, your organization will gain crucial exposure at our events and engagements throughout the year.
