Only through your efforts can we achieve our mission of feeding hungry people and working to solve hunger issues in our community. We need volunteers every day to help sort and pack food donations, prepare BackPacks for hungry children, as well as assist with special events and administrative support. When you donate your time to Second Harvest, you become a partner in the fight against hunger in Middle Tennessee.
