Having enough food to eat shouldn’t be on anyone’s Christmas wish list, but it is when you’re hungry. In Tennessee, 1 in 4 children are struggling with hunger. Instead of wishing for toys under the tree, these children just wish for a meal to eat.
The families served by Second Harvest and our Partner Agencies wish they could find better paying jobs in these tough economic times. Many wish they didn’t have to choose between food and paying for rent, utilities and medical bills.
So while many people are wishing for the latest toys and gadgets this Christmas, far too many people in Tennessee are wishing for nutritious meals on their tables.
This year, instead of buying every item on your list, consider spending your holiday dollars to feed those in need. You can spend $50 on a popular toy or you can donate that $50 and provide 200 meals to hungry men, women and children. Every dollar you give will provide 4 meals.
