NEW! 2016 Annual Report Released

Every meal has a story.

omar_tatiyanna_bryleaWith every one of the 26 million meals provided by Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee in Fiscal Year 2016, there is a story of gratitude and hope.

Each story begins with you because you made it all possible. You made a difference whether it was contributing funds, volunteering hours or donating food. Your generosity gave hope to children, families and seniors facing hunger.

At just 10 years old, Mya dreams of being a doctor, but she was struggling in school because she wasn’t getting enough to eat at home to help her learn and grow. The time you volunteered assembling BackPacks provided her with easy-to-prepare food to eat on weekends when other food resources were unavailable.

Miranda is balancing work and a demanding college schedule while taking care of her young daughter and helping her mother, who is awaiting an organ transplant. The dollars you graciously gave allowed her family to access much-needed fresh groceries at a Mobile Pantry distribution held at her local Second Harvest Partner Agency.

As a senior with high blood pressure living on a fixed income, Charles found himself forced to choose between paying for food and medicine. The food items you donated filled an Emergency Food Box with nutrient-rich staple foods that Charles needed to help stabilize his diet-related illness and allowed him to afford his medicine.

This report highlights a variety of numbers illustrating our operational efficiency and exceptional growth, but it is your dedication and support that complete the story. We are so grateful for the role you play in changing the lives of our hungry neighbors. Thank you for fighting hunger and feeding hope.
