Senior Outreach

Donate Now

The Senior Outreach program is a partnership between Second Harvest and East Tennessee nonprofits that serve the elderly. Seniors are disproportionately at risk of hunger compared to other age groups. In a recent senior survey, more than 30% reported having to choose between buying groceries and buying medicine within the last month; 25% reported choosing between paying rent and going grocery shopping. The food bank provides emergency and supplemental food to seniors across 18 counties. Senior Outreach currently serves 870+ seniors each month in 14 counties.
