Second Harvest Food Bank’s PACK THE BAG Campaign

Supporting the 14,000+ students in the Food for Kids Program.

May 1 – 14 Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee will be hosting their “Pack the Bag” fundraiser to benefit their Food for Kids Program with the aim to feed over 14,000 in 14 days. Food for Kids is a collaboration between Second Harvest and over 298 participating public schools to provide nutritious, easily prepared food to children likely to miss meals on a regular basis. For $100, a child can be sponsored for the entire year. 

Second Harvest thanks several crucial corporate sponsors who kicked off this campaign, each of which believe in supporting East Tennessee children. Special thanks to SouthEast Bank, Republic Plastics, and the many other business and civic organizations who support the campaign. 

Second Harvest fundraises for the Food for Kids Program year-round. Information on this and other feeding programs is available at
