This year’s food drive sponsored by WKRN News 2 and Second Harvest Food Bank collected even more food than last year. Elementary, middle and high schools across Middle Tennessee competed to see who can collect the most canned goods and non-perishable items on a per-student basis.
The Food 2 Families drive, which ran between Aug. 28 and Oct. 31, raised over 302,000 pounds of food!
This year’s winners in each category are Percy Priest Elementary, St. Bernard Academy, and Montgomery Bell Academy. These three schools will receive a visit from News 2, The Tennessee Titans, Cornerstone Financial, and Second Harvest Food Bank. And every school that became a top donor will receive a check prize from Cornerstone Financial.
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this year’s food drive a success. 302,000 pounds will feed a lot of hungry Tennesseans this holiday season!
