Nashville Office Reunites With Second Harvest Food Bank After Community Giving Grant Award

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee

Last month, employees from our Nashville office put our #DoGreatThings value into action by volunteering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, assembling weekend snack packs for students in need across middle Tennessee. Due to economic hardship and food insecurity exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, many students in this area rely on school lunches as their main source of food. To help alleviate food insecurity among students and their families on weekends, Second Harvest assembles and distributes snack packs to provide students with much-needed nourishment on the days spent outside the classroom, and in turn promote health, wellbeing and academic success when students return to school.

Alongside other volunteers from the region, our team of seven packed and organized 280 boxes of food, providing weekend snacks to 1,960 middle Tennessee students receiving free or reduced-cost lunches. The group included: Sarah Bombrys, Carolyn Carter, Hayden VanDerVoort, Kevin Smith, Mohera Narimetla, John Welchance and Dustin Derryberry.
