Words from our Neighbors

Thankful for the food pantry who provided us with food and we were able to pay our rent instead of getting behind trying to feed my family.

Trisha, Grainger County

We are so very appreciative that the food pantry is available. I’ve been out of a job for one and a half years due to surgeries and stroke with no financial income. We use the pantry as needed because it has been an extreme struggle for our family. It is amazing that your staff provides this service. Thank you!

Dave, Blount County

The Food Bank has helped me and my family several times. Even as a child, they helped my parents help me. Never be ashamed to ask for help! They put love into the food boxes just for us.

Shelby, Loudon County

Second Harvest has made me feel like I am going to be okay. I am thankful for the help when I didn’t know where to go.
