News 2 Food 2 Families Registration Is Now Open!

Food 2 Families

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and News 2, WKRN-TV are teaming up once again for the News 2 Food 2 Families School Food Drive! Elementary, middle, and high schools are all encouraged to participate.

Register your school!

Download the informational packet.

Not only is News 2 Food 2 Families an opportunity for local schools to fight hunger, but it’s also an opportunity to show children that they too can make a difference in their community. 

On the first day of school, children facing hunger will have already fallen behind their classmates. They will have more difficulty concentrating in class, be sick more often, and be less likely to excel academically.

Make sure your school joins News 2 Food 2 Families, so every child can start the school year off right!

Last year, over 70 local schools participated, and students donated more than 300,000 items. We hope to have an even bigger impact this year! WKRN
