Y-12 FCU Gives Foundation provides grant to Second Harvest

Y-12 FCU Gives Foundation presented a check to Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee for the Food for Kids program. Second Harvest is leading the effort to compassionately feed East Tennessee’s hungry and engage the community in the fight against hunger as 1 in 7 people in East Tennessee live in poverty and have difficulty meeting basic needs.

 

Every Friday each at-risk kid who participates in the program receives a bag that provides nutritional items for the weekend. There are over 124 Food for Kids sites in East Tennessee and 41 in the 8 counties served by the grant which Y-12 FCU Gives Foundation provided.
