Group Volunteering at Second Harvest Food Bank

5:30 - 8:00 PM
Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee’s mission is to feed hungry people and solve hunger issues in our community. This is not possible without the help of countless volunteers that work each year who help get food ready to go out to the community.

Second Harvest needs volunteers to help sort donated food for Middle Tennessee families who need a hand! Volunteers sort non-perishable and perishable food into categories for distribution to not-for-profit agencies in Middle Tennessee. Food sorting is done at Second Harvest Food Bank’s Martin Distribution Center in Nashville in our warehouse. With your help, we are fighting hunger and feeding hope in our community.

Wear closed-toed shoes and clothes appropriate for a warehouse (jeans or comfortable clothing). If you can help out with the perishables sort, please bring warm clothes and gloves as you will be working in the cooler. We'll be bending, stooping and possibly lifting up to 35 pounds. (Not required. If you have trouble lifting just let the supervisor know.)

Kids 12 and up allowed, one adult per kid.

Volunteer parking is at the front part of the lot, closest to the front doors of the building. When you arrive, please sign in and we'll get everyone set with job assignments.

    Thanks for the info. I will call them to find out how to volunteer with the kids. I would have been there tonight, but I had my kids with me. Looking forward to Friday night, though.

    Are there ever any opportunities for kids ages 5 and 10 to help out with something like this?

    December 11, 2013

    • Rob C

      My 10 year old did it with West End Middle earlier this year.

    • Kurt A.

      For our shifts, I'd prefer to have older kids as we work at a pretty high pace with the conveyor belt running. I'm all about getting kids involved with charities, so please don't let me stop you from checking out other opportunities to serve with Second Harvest... :)

    Work is crazy - I'm going to try and do my best to walk out tomorrow and make it over to help - just can't say at this point if I'll be successful.
