Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee to host 6th annual MAYDAY Radio-thon and open house on Wednesday, May 1, 2019. MAYDAY will start at 6 a.m., lasting until 7 p.m. at Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee located at 136 Harvest Lane in Maryville, Tenn.
Second Harvest’s goal is to raise $100,000 on MAYDAY for Food for Kids, Summer Food for Kids and the School Pantry programs. With $100,000, more than 133,000 Food for Kids meals can be provided in 18 East Tennessee counties.
Back this year: donations of $20 or more given in person at the food bank will receive a FREE 2019 MAYDAY t-shirt!
Elaine Streno, Executive Director says, “Our Youth programs and School Pantry program feed thousands of the most vulnerable people Second Harvest serves—children and their families. Each year MAYDAY helps our efforts for children to receive the nutritious food they need, and we cannot do it without you!”
