Over 200 members and guests from the Rotary Club of Nashville and community partner, Second Harvest, joined forces on the morning of December 2 at the Food Bank in Metro Center to provide volunteer service at the food bank and to pack just over 1,900 holiday food boxes.

“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.
