For two decades, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee has been fortunate to have an unwavering ally in the fight against hunger – Ole South. Since their first involvement, Ole South has been more than just a partner; they’ve embodied our mission. We want to express our deepest gratitude to Ole South for their enduring support and contributions.
A Legacy of Giving: 1.9 Million Meals and Counting

Through their generous support, Ole South has helped provide an astounding 1.9 million meals to our neighbors in need. This incredible milestone is a testament to their dedication to making a tangible difference for those in Middle and West Tennessee.
Beyond Financial Support: The Power of Volunteerism
Ole South’s contributions extend far beyond financial support. They have provided almost 300 volunteer hours, which play a pivotal role in our operations and outreach. Notably, their volunteers were instrumental during our initial response to the devastating impact of Hurricane Ian in Fall 2022. Their team’s hands-on involvement during this critical time helped us efficiently address the surge in need and effectively distribute essential supplies to affected communities.
Driving Change: Sponsoring a Refrigerated Box Truck
In 2021, Ole South deepened their by sponsoring a refrigerated box truck. This vehicle has become an essential asset in our daily operations, enabling us to transport perishable goods safely and expand our reach to more areas in need. The refrigerated truck, still actively in service, stands as a symbol of Ole South’s foresight in understanding the logistics of hunger relief and their proactive approach to providing solutions.

Our partnership with Ole South is built on a foundation of shared values – compassion, community service, and a collective responsibility.
