21st Gives Back: Second Harvest Food Bank

Second Harvest Food Bank is East TN's largest hunger-relief charity and distributes over 18 million pounds of food and grocery products annually. 1 in 6 people in East Tennessee, our own backyard, lives in poverty and has difficulty meeting basic needs. Among children in OUR community, 1 in 4 are at risk of going hungry today. The need among senior citizens continues to rise. In East TN, an astounding 200,000 people are at risk of hunger.

Second Harvest can provide 3 meals with every $1 donation. There are several ways to get involved with this particular organization whether through volunteer work or donations. We spent our time packing food boxes.
