"My husband and I both, both had good jobs, and we were knocked down by illness, so what do you do?" says Raasoner.
So many like Mary Alice rely on the helping hand of emergency food box sites, which are run in part by donations from the Second Harvest Food Bank. At the warehouse, the shelves are stocked full of donated goods. While it looks like a lot, it's still not enough. The demand is up 18% from what it was last year, and that's where you come in. On Thursday, FOX17 is teaming up with the Nashville Predators and and the Second Harvest Food Bank to host the Feeding Hope Challenge food drive. Our goal? To provide 10 million meals to those in need this holiday season.
"We're trying something new," says Second Harvest Food Bank's Tasha Kennard. "We're trying to make it as easy as possible. All you have to do is grab something form your pantry, get something from your grocery store, pick up peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, cereal, and drive it by Bridgestone Arena and we will pick it up from you. You don't even have to get out of your car."
A simple way to give back, and give hope to those like Mary Alice. That all kicks off tomorrow starting at 6:30am outside of Bridgestone Arena. We'll be out there, along with the Nashville Predators, collecting your donations. You can come by before work, during your lunch break or at the end of the day until 10pm.
