a look at what we can do together


Our Mission

Our mission is to bring friends, hot dogs, chefs, and amazing local charities together weekly on The Beltline. We aim to raise awareness of issues affecting our community such as Atlanta food deserts, poverty, LGBTQ rights, housing justice and undocumented youth.

We partner with local chefs to serve one-of-a-kind toppings and sell hot dogs at the Beltline entrance of Ponce City Market on Saturdays for donations. All proceeds go directly to the nonprofit organization of each chef's choice. 

The donations we received help fund our vital educational programs, which includes providing tuition-free college classes to undocumented students banned from public universities in Georgia. We are so grateful for all the love and encouragement we received from our neighbors on the Beltline and look forward to working with the Helpful Hotdog again soon
