16th annual “Feed the Need” project to feed over 1,900 Nashville families

The Rotary Club of Nashville and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee have once again teamed up for the 16th annual “Feed the Need” project to feed over 1,900 families this holiday season.
Members from the Rotary Club of Nashville and community partner, Second Harvest, will join forces on the morning of December 2, between 8 -10:30 am at the Food Bank, 331 Great Circle Road in Metro Center, to provide volunteer service at the food bank and to pack  just over 1,900 holiday food boxes.

Working with Metro. Development and Housing Agency, the organizations identify select elderly, disabled or nearly disabled residents in the Watkins Park community to receive the food boxes.
In announcing this project, Evette White, CEO, Executive Selection Inc. and President of the Rotary Club commented, “Nashville Rotary is excited to continue our signature project that provides an opportunity for the Rotary Club of Nashville to put into action our motto of “Service Above Self” and to continue our commitment to service.”

“We all know and are in contact with people affected by hunger,” said Jaynee Day, President and CEO of Second Harvest.  “Hunger often affects hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.  Our partnership with the Rotary Club of Nashville provides an opportunity to make a significant impact in our community especially as the need for assistance continues to increase. ”

Organized in 1978, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee is a private, not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization. The Food Bank’s mission is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community. For more information, please visit secondharvestmidtn.org
