May 1, 2014 (All day)


Thursday, May 1st

Together we are fighting hunger and feeding hope in our community. With your help Second Harvest can raise money for our community for the 1 in 5 East Tennesseans that will go hungry tonight. Second Harvest serves 169,000 people every month, and 39 percent are children.

On Thursday, May 1st Second Harvest Food Bank will host a MAYDAY Fundraiser for The Food For Kids Summer Program. There are approximately 11,000 kids who receive food from this program during the school year, so with donations on MAY 1ST, these children have the ability to continue receiving food at no charge during the summer as well. The Food For Kids Program serves 18 counties of approximately 7,700 square miles.

You can help feed the hungry children in East Tennessee by calling 865-243-8227, going online to, or text HUNGER to 501501 to donate on Thursday, May 1st.
