In Tennessee, 1 in 6 adults and 1 in 4 children struggle with hunger – daily. More than 30 percent of our clients must choose between food and other necessities like rent, utilities, medical expenses and transportation. Second Harvest has increased food distribution by 25 percent over the past two year – and we must do more.
The mission of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community. Second Harvest is a member of Feeding America– the nation’s largest hunger relief organization – and we partner with more than 400 Partner Agencies throughout our 46-county service area in Middle and West Tennessee. Our programs provide emergency food assistance, after school, weekend and summer feeding for children, disaster relief and nutrition education for those in need.
