Ms. Cheap’s Penny Drive
You have until Jan. 31 to pitch in your change – or dollars– for the 11th annual Ms. Cheap’s Penny Drive for Second Harvest.
You can pick up and drop off penny drive cans at these locations:
- Pinnacle Financial Partners
- Wilson Bank & Trust bank branches
- Second Harvest Food Bank in Metro Center
Or you can donate your dollars to the Penny Drive here.
SAVE THE DATE! Eat. Drink. Give back. The perfect bites from Nashville’s finest restaurants are waiting for you at Generous Helpings, our annual fundraiser at City Winery. Past delicacies have included a cheese grit cake with andouille sausage mousse, and crab-topped polenta with shaved fennel. Pair the delicious tastings with fine wines and craft beers, and enjoy a fabulous evening that supports Middle Tennessee’s Table, our grocery rescue program. Tickets will go on sale in March.
Stamp Out Hunger
Do an easy peasy good deed May 9: Simply leave a bag of nonperishable food next to your mailbox. U.S. Postal Service letter carriers will collect your donation when they deliver your mail. This is the 28th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, led by the National Association of Letter Carriers.
Most needed items this year include peanut butter, canned chicken and tuna, and canned fruits or vegetables.
Stars for Second Harvest
SAVE THE DATE! Tickets always sell out for Stars for Second Harvest because this acoustic benefit concert happens during CMA Fest and is held at the historic Ryman Auditorium, former site of the Grand Ole Opry.
Past headliners have included Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, and Dierks Bentley. All proceeds help feed hungry people in Middle and West Tennessee.
Look for more info on ticket sales in April!
Spread the Love
Peanut butter is one of our most needed items, but it’s rarely donated. You can help change that.
Open the pantry door in most Middle Tennessee households, and you’re likely to find a jar of peanut butter. It’s a staple in almost every home, including those struggling with hunger. Because of its nutritional value, long shelf life, and widespread popularity, peanut butter is one of our most needed items.
Despite the demand, peanut butter is not often donated. So every February we launch our Spread the Love campaign as a reminder that we need your help getting those nut butters!
Not only do we try to stock the shelves at our Partner Agencies with peanut butter, but we also aim to include at least one jar in every Emergency Food Box, a program which provides individuals and families who have unexpectedly hit hard times with a box of essential food items.
Throughout the month of February, please help us #SpreadTheLove by donating jars of peanut butter. HERE’S HOW
