The Knoxville Barristers Hunger and Poverty Relief Committee would like to invite members to participate in this year’s canned food & fund drive, which benefits Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee. The pandemic forced Second Harvest into crisis mode to make sure families wouldn’t go hungry because many food pantries were forced to close temporarily. Second Harvest Food Bank is East Tennessee's largest hunger-relief charity, operating programs in 18 counties.
Second Harvest Food Bank secures and distributes an average of 21 million pounds of food and grocery products annually through a network of more than 6300+ partnering nonprofit organizations such as food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and schools. Second Harvest Food Bank provides food to more than 134,000 children, adults, and seniors each month.
If your firm would like to participate in this year’s drive, please use the link below to create your team by Friday, November 5:
Rules of the Competition
Anyone can win this year’s friendly competition! The winner will be determined by the most meals per employee so that both the weight of the donated food and the monetary donations are included in the calculations for the final standings.
After November 8, you may contribute to the Knoxville Barristers Food & Fund Drive, even if you are unable to sign up as a firm or organization. If you have questions, please contact Chandler Fletcher, Programs & Communications Coordinator.
