Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee started in 1978 with dedicated community leaders who wanted to provide a central distribution center for companies, groups and individuals who desired to help provide food for hungry people in Middle Tennessee. Second Harvest’s mission is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community.
Did you know that one in four children in the state of Tennessee are food insecure? Could you imagine not knowing where your next meal was going to come from? Having to juggle which is more important, getting gas for work tomorrow or buying dinner for your family? Well, you may have never faced these challenges but many families in Middle Tennessee and across the state are. The Second Harvest Food Bank provided somewhere around twenty-million meals to hungry children, families and seniors last year?
The SHFBMT will be hosting its annual Generous Helpings Fundraiser on Thursday, May 15 from 6-9 p.m. at the Nashville Farmer’s Market. And I’m elated to be partnering with them in giving away two tickets to one lucky winner. How awesome is that?! I love these kind of events because my work schedule is hectic and these awesome events allow me to sample cuisine from restaurants I haven’t had the chance to dine at. I’ve heard the event is phenomenal and I am looking forward to seeing you there! The event will feature 30 of Nashville’s finest restaurants and local beverage/wine distributors. It will be a night full of stuffing your face and mingling with some of the most talented chefs in Nashville. You can find out more on the event here including the list of participants!
The contest rules are simple and as follows:
1. Join Second Harvest’s e-mail list at secondharvestmidtn.org
2. Follow Second Harvest on twitter : @2HarvestMidTN and if you don’t have a twitter account, you can follow on facebook.
3. Follow me on twitter @localforkful and retweet the contest.
4. Come back to this blog post and leave a comment stating that you have completed all three tasks. The contest ends on Wednesday April 30th. A winner will be chosen and notified via e-mail on Monday April 28th.
I mean, could it be more simple for a pair of tickets worth $100 value which reminds me. If you don’t happen to win the contest, this is such a great cause that I encourage you to head over to the website and make a donation. What better way to bless someone than with food?!
