The Feed America First Mission is "to provide food to those who feed the hungry". FAF was founded in 2000 to provide a reliable source of food supplies to agencies engaged in hunger relief as part of their ministry. The food supplies we seek are donated by manufacturers, distributors, growers, and other charitable organizations, and are distributed at no cost to our 220+ client agencies. Our focus is upon those charities in small towns, poor counties, and rural areas generally underserved by other, larger charities. Charities may qualify by proving tax-exempt status, and by agreeing to donate all goods freely, without sale, barter, or administrative fees.
Feed America First conducts monthly food distributions at four Mid-South venues: Loaves and Fishes in Sheffield, AL, Petra Ministries in Selmer, TN, Salem UMC in Cookeville, TN, and at our Distribution Center in Murfreesboro, TN. Each of our qualified agencies (over 180 at the end of 2009) is invited to pick up 500-1,000 pounds of food at no charge to augment their own supplies, with the variety and quantity determined by FAF.

dvg1's Review for Feed America First of Tennessee

Feed America First sets the bar very high for outstanding stewardship. The concept is simple and the results are profound; distrubuting 18 million pounds of food thus far (which would have dumped into a landfill prior to expiration) AND those most-in-need get it free of charge via 160 partner charitable organizations in their local area. Wow! I was privileged to serve at the gala event, with my wife in November 2011, "Dancing With The Nashville Stars". The caliber of the entire event was top-notch. We've also volunteered at Tennessee Titans games in the Logan's Roadhouse concessions - and you know an NFL team is not about to risk their reputation on a fly-by-night charity. I pray that you consider volunteering your time, talent, and donations to FAF.
