Lifepoint Health: Making Communities Healthier Year After Year

In an effort to fight hunger and increase food access, Lifepoint Health has provided over 3 million meals to those in need.

Previously, our friends at Lifepoint Health sponsored and volunteered at a Mobile Pantry that provided over 24,000 pounds of food to 141 families and 878 people.

That in itself is an impressive contribution, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg of what Lifepoint has done to fight food insecurity and increase access to healthy foods in Middle Tennessee.

FEEDING HEALTH

For the eighth year, we’ve partnered with Lifepoint during Nutrition Month in an effort to make communities healthier.

As a leading healthcare company, Lifepoint knows those struggling with hunger are at a higher risk of developing diet-related illnesses like high blood pressure and diabetes.

Managing these chronic diseases can further drain a family’s limited resources and trap them in a cycle of hunger and health issues.

Lifepoint wants to stop this cycle before it can even begin, so over these last eight years, they have committed to fighting hunger and increasing access to whole, nutritious food.

To date, Lifepoint has helped us distribute over 3 million pounds of fresh produce, added necessary equipment to our fleet, and have spearheaded an initiative to allow Second Harvest to provide food boxes designed to mitigate chronic illnesses like diabetes and hypertension.

 Lifepoint’s impact will only grow as they continue to fight hunger alongside Second Harvest.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Many businesses say they want to make a difference. Lifepoint Health made it their mission. This dedication to fighting hunger comes directly from their employees.

Enacting change that will decrease hunger and increase food access isn’t simple, but Lifepoint’s understanding of how hunger affects health, commitment to providing healthy foods, and enthusiasm for volunteer work are turning these ambitious goals into reality.

Chaque dollar que vous donnez aide à fournir au moins 4 repas à des familles dans le besoin grâce à Second Harvest.
