Due to the effects of the pandemic, it is projected that an additional 33,000 people in our region will struggle to find food this fall. We need your help to raise awareness to the growing need for food assistance here in Northeast Tennessee. Consider making a donation or hosting a virtual food drive with your friends and family. Every dollar you give Second Harvest goes straight to buy food to fight hunger. We need you to spread the word that hunger is a curable condition if we all work together to END HUNGER ONE BITE AT A TIME!

In these uncertain times of crisis, Second Harvest Food Bank is continuing its mission to feed the people of Northeast Tennessee. We have seen unprecedented need during the last few months going from feeding on average 40,000 people per month to well over 45,000 each month during the pandemic. As people continue to lose their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we know the number of people who are food insecure will rise. Please consider donating to Second Harvest to help us eliminate hunger in our region.
