Earlier this month, we partnered with UnitedHealthcare to help provide a hunger free summer for those in need. Employee volunteers joined us at OneGenAway in Franklin for a Mobile Pantry. Mobile Pantries serve nearly 15,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to individuals and families in need during one-day food distributions, similar to a farmers’ market. Together, we provided approximately 250 families in rural communities with one to two weeks of groceries.
UnitedHealthcare has been a dedicated supporter in the fight against hunger. Since 2012, UnitedHealthcare has donated $375,000 to Second Harvest, providing nearly 3 million pounds of food to more than 33,000 struggling households in our community.
We’re thankful for UnitedHealthcare’s continued support of our mission to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community. “Their generous contributions to our Mobile Pantry Program help us reach some of our most vulnerable neighbors in rural communities, ” said President & CEO Jaynee Day.
“We want to do all we can to help build healthier communities and eradicate hunger in Middle Tennessee,” said Rita Johnson-Mills, CEO, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Tennessee.
To increase the impact in the fight against hunger, UnitedHealthcare® and an anonymous donor have generously offered to match every gift made to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee — up to $125,000. That means every dollar you give will be matched for a grand total of $250,000!
