No matter who you are or what you're experiencing, Second Harvest is here to help.


Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee is a Feeding America food bank designed to alleviate hunger in our community.

You may have heard the words "food bank" or "food pantry," but what do they really mean?

A food bank is a nonprofit that receives and then safely stores food before distributing it to hunger relief partners, from schools to churches to food pantries. Food pantries are the locations where this food is shared with the community.


We serve 18 counties in East Tennessee spanning nearly 8,000 square miles.


For every $1 donated, 3 meals are provided.

More than 230,000 East Tennesseans are at risk of hunger, uncertain where their next meal will come from. At Second Harvest Food Bank, we are trying to change that statistic in 18 East Tennessee counties.
