1 in 8 people, including 1 in 7 children, struggle with hunger every day in Middle and West Tennessee. Hunger is closer than you think, but so is the solution. Currently, Second Harvest is experiencing a startling increase in need and more people than ever are using the food bank’s resources.
So this year, Sol Kendamas, and Kendama Cares are hosting the Battle At The Border canned food drive to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, a program that provides food to people facing hunger, while working to advance hunger solutions.
Food shortages, inflation and supply chain issues across the country have drastically impacted Second Harvest's ability to source donations of nutritious food for our neighbors facing hunger. This means Second Harvest must provide more to feed our Middle and West Tennessee neighbors.
We are so excited to announce that this year, anyone participating in this event virtually, whether as a spectator, or a competitor, has a unique opportunity to join us in our community outreach efforts, and enter into our raffle fun. Both - in person, and online support of this food drive provides hope, as well as meals, to those in need here in Nashville.How you can help
As soon as we heard that peanut butter was the most asked for, least donated item on the list, we decided to put our promotion focus there first. In light of peanut butter prices across the US, raffle ticket numbers will be assigned to each donation in $5 increments.
- For example : $5.00 donation = 2 raffle tickets, $15.00 donation = 6 raffle tickets, and so on.
- Once you have completed the donation process, dm a screenshot of your receipt to @kendamacares Instagram, to be matched with our records, and receive your specifically assigned raffle ticket numbers.
- Then stay tuned to the Sweets Kendamas, Twitch Livestream to catch each raffle pull LIVE. Because, you will need to be “present” to win, we will be sure to give you timeframes with ample notice to plan around, or get someone to listen on your behalf.

Second Harvest is proud to report that 96 cents of every dollar goes directly to our feeding programs.
Thank you for your support. Together, we will fight hunger and feed hope.
