With the help of our amazing volunteers and partners, we've made a major impact on hunger right here in Tennessee and abroad.
As recent as May 2017, the Tennessean reported its’ statistics on poverty and hunger. The report found that 18.9% of Nashvillians live in poverty — a higher rate than Tennessee (17.9%) and the nation (15.9%). According to a recent Feeding America study, an estimated 49 million Americans are food insecure, including more than 1 million Tennesseans.
It is estimated that 13.3% of Rutherford County residents live in poverty. According to the Tennessee Department of Human Services, 1 in 4 children in Tennessee faces hunger every day. We are asking you to help us bring hope to the poor and disadvantaged. Our organization seeks to reach out to the impoverished community through our illiteracy prevention and food distribution programs and generally to help families in need.
