Here at Scripps Radio Knoxville, our community is our family. So we're taking time every month on all 4 Scripps Radio Knoxville stations to spotlight local charitable causes that serve our community's needs with our 'Giving Light Initiative'. Each chosen non-profit cause receives $10,000 worth of promotional and commercial support to highlight their charity and the selfless work they do to help our friends and neighbors in East Tennessee.
This month's charity is Second Harvest Food Bank
$1 is all it takes to give 3 meals.1 in 7 people in East Tennessee lives in poverty and has difficulty meeting basic needs. At Second Harvest Food Bank, we are trying to change that statistic in 18 East Tennessee counties.
Second Harvest’s programs are arranged to reach every demographic in every corner of East Tennessee. From programs specific to children and seniors, to programs specializing in meeting families’ needs, no one is forgotten if they are hungry.
People of all ages in East Tennessee are served by Second Harvest Food Bank. These programs are specifically designed to ensure no matter how young or old, no one goes hungry in Second Harvest’s 18-county service area.
If this is something you're interested in for your charity. Let us know!
