At Puckett’s, there’s a story behind each of our restaurants and our recipes. That’s why we are partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to tell the story of generosity and hope during our first ever Funds 4 Food Campaign, April 1st through 30th, at Puckett’s Gro. in downtown Nashville.
It is disheartening that in Middle Tennessee, 1 in 7 people–including 1 in 5 children–struggle with hunger. In fact, you could fill up the Nissan stadium 6 TIMES with the amount of people in our community who are facing food insecurity issues.
To us, it’s about more than just statistics. It’s about the faces of children who go to bed hungry and the parents worrying about where their next meal will come from–people who are our Middle Tennessee neighbors.
We want to put an end to hunger in our community, and we need your help. During our month-long campaign, diners at Puckett’s Gro. in downtown Nashville will have the opportunity to add an extra dollar or more to their total, which will provide at least four meals to local families affected by hunger. Plus, we will match each donation up to $5,000. That means with each dollar donation, you can provide eight meals to families in need.
“Most people don’t realize that so many in our area go hungry on a daily basis,” said Kyle Williams, senior manager at Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. “We are blessed to be in a community where companies like Puckett’s help to shed light on the issue and are eager to help give back.”
Founded in 1978, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee works to solve hunger issues in Middle and West Tennessee. Second Harvest collects, sorts and distributes food and personal care products to more than 490 partner agencies throughout 46 counties. Their partner agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, foster care facilities, senior centers, group homes and youth enrichment programs.
Our goal during the Funds 4 Food campaign is to provide 40,000 meals through Second Harvest. We are confident that with your help, we can achieve this goal!
