Disaster Relief Update

Because many people don’t have electricity after this week’s tornadoes, our most-needed items right now are those that don’t require refrigeration, such as: 

  • Pop-top canned meats, veggies, and fruit
  • Ready-to-eat soups and stews
  • Peanut butter and crackers
  • Cereal and cereal bars
  • Energy bars

Donate Food

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee distributed more than 35 million pounds of food during FY19, which included more than 10 million pounds of fresh produce. We receive food donations from local grocers, manufacturers, local growers and farmers, and food drives.
