September is “Hunger Action Month”!
Non-profits like Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee struggle with reduced food contributions over the summer and then are hit hard when school resumes and the need for food products increases significantly.
HBP and DBH are teaming up with Second Harvest to feed the hungry in our community.
Opportunities to Help:
Participate in the office food drive by bringing non-perishable items into the box in the breakroom throughout the month of Sept. (Deadline Sept. 29th, as we will deliver donations on Sept. 30th)
Contribute via the “Virtual Food Drive” with a goal to raise $750.00 by Sept. 30th. One dollar = 4 meals, so that would equal 2,000 meals! If you decide to participate, click the "2016 Hunt Brothers Pizza Team" link to the right to get to the donation page.
Sign up to join the HBP Team in sorting food products at the Second Harvest Warehouse on Saturday, Sept. 24th, from 9am - noon. Please contact Jeff or Barbara ASAP or no later than Sept. 9th if you are interested in participating on the HBP Team.
Plan to wear orange clothing to the Sept. 27th luncheon and learn how our companies are partnering with Second Harvest to “Take a Bite Out of Hunger in Middle TN”.
In addition, the HBP Community Van (lead by Ms. Patricia Hunt) will be providing a meal for a special Second Harvest Fund raiser on Tuesday, Sept. 13th.
Join us in this worthy effort and take action to end hunger in our community by participating in one or more of the activities above.
Feel free to contact me, Barbara or Mary if you have any additional questions or wish to sign up.
