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.

    Thank you all so much for a great sorting shift! Your flexibility with the equipment was very much appreciated and with 15,300 pounds of food sorted, you showed that it didn't make any difference! I hope you all have a blessed holiday season and that we'll see you again soon!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
