Emergency Food Box

Our Emergency Food Box (EFB) sites feed individuals and families in Davidson County on an urgent-need basis. An EFB provides two to three days of staple food items based on the number of members in each household.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Outreach

Second Harvest offers SNAP Outreach through our Emergency Food Box Sites, Mobile Pantry Distributions, and partner agencies. SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) is for people and families with low incomes, including working people, households with children, seniors, unemployed people, immigrant families, and people with disabilities. SNAP helps them buy the food they need for good health.

Second Harvest’s Benefits Outreach Counselor shares information about the nutrition benefits of SNAP, pre-screens potential participants, and helps people fill out the SNAP Application. In the 2017-18 fiscal year, our counselor helped complete more than 1,250 SNAP applications and provided indirect application assistance to another 2,000 clients.

For more information on SNAP, please send us an email, or call us at 615-310-0752.
