James, a Navy veteran, had to stop working after damaging his back and knees. He walks with a cane to help support his arthritic knees, and he’s currently in the application process for disability benefits.
In the meantime, James struggles to pay for groceries on his limited Social Security income. That’s why he’s especially grateful he can pick up nutritious food from Second Harvest’s Mobile Pantry at the Nashville Fairgrounds.
“Every little bit helps out,” he says.
James has a long list of favorite recipes he’s learned over the years. He loves to cook and says it’s because of your generosity that he can keep healthy — and tasty — meals on his table.
James says he makes a meal depending on the ingredients he receives from the Mobile Pantry. It’s a special day when he finds sweet potatoes there and can make one of his favorite recipes.
“The more you give, the more we benefit,” James says, thanking you for your gifts.
Because you choose to give to Second Harvest, neighbors like James never have to worry about missing vital meals. Your generosity supports our shared mission to help feed Tennesseans of all ages and solve hunger issues in our community.
