Tennessee College of Applied Technology at McKenzie had 19 students volunteer to help with the Mobile Food Pantry in Greenfield on March 29th. The event was sponsored by Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and Sacks Thrift Avenue/Sacks Food Pantry in Greenfield.
Once there, the students, along with the other volunteers, helped to unload the truck and organize the food items, then assisted in packing the food and cleaning up afterwards.
16,922 lbs. of food was distributed to 150 families representing 499 persons by over 40 volunteers.
Second Harvest has a network of over 450 Partner Agencies working together to feed hungry men, women and children throughout our 46-county service area. Second Harvest collects, sorts and distributes food and personal care products to over 450 partner agencies throughout 46 Middle and West Tennessee counties.
The organizers and the community were grateful to the students for all their help and were thankful to TCAT-McKenzie for allowing the students to take time out from their classes to volunteer.
