Donor Relations and Questions

Second Harvest recognizes the importance of being good stewards of donor dollars, which is why we’re proud to say that a $1 donation provides 3 meals to an East Tennessean at-risk of hunger, and that Charity Navigator confirms 95.73% of funds are spent on programs. If you have any questions regarding your donation (receipts, tax letters, monthly gifts, etc.), please contact our Senior Manager of Donor Services, Shelley. You can also call her at (865) 243-8216.
