Due to the devastation of tornadoes in Tennessee and COVID-19 hardships, many children, families, and seniors urgently need our help. Recovery from these events will take months. Second Harvest is here for the long haul, ready to help feed our neighbors affected. And we know we can count on you to support these efforts.

We continue to assess the need in our communities and respond to urgent requests as they arise. Please see the list below for current emergency and disaster relief opportunities:
