Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee, Inc. Overview
Programs: We operate the following programs: * Kids Cafe: The Kids Cafe program was implemented by Second Harvest Food Bank in 1999 in an effort to provide underprivileged children with a nutritious snack or meal at various after school programs in our rural area of Appalachia. * Food for Kids BackPack Program: This collaborative effort between Second Harvest and area schools identifies and reaches needy children who may have little or nothing to eat during the weekend. These children are given nutritious food in individual serving sizes that they can take home and eat. * Second Helpings Food Rescue Program: We partner with local restaurants, caterers, grocery stores, hospitals, hotels and schools to utilize prepared and perishable foods that would otherwise be thrown away. The rescued food is distributed to agencies providing on-site meals to hungry children and families. Two million pounds of food have been rescued through this program. * Mobile Food Bank: Many rural agencies lack sufficient funding or manpower to transport food and grocery items from the Second Harvest warehouse to their agencies. * Mobile Food Pantry: This program provides a mass distribution of food to low-income households at risk for hunger. Second Harvest distributes bags of groceries to public housing residents in various communities on a rotating basis. 25,000 people each month benefit from food provided by Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee and its 200 partners.
