Community Partnership Event Guidelines

All businesses and individuals holding a Community Event at which they deem Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee as their beneficiary must sign an agreement that clarifies the campaign, goal, and action items.

The group conducting the event will handle all planning, logistics, and expenses associated with the Community Event and will then gift Second Harvest at least the minimum donation amount agreed upon by both parties.

To support your efforts while balancing our own limited staff resources, Second Harvest can provide varying levels of assistance based on the amount of the minimum donation:

  • Use of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee logo (all uses of the name or logo must be approved before printing or public use)
  • Second Harvest will share and retweet posts created by the Community Event Partner as possible (number and frequency determined by the timing of the campaign)
