Bring Donation for Second Harvest Food Bank – Receive FREE Admission on Mondays
2,641 POUNDS COLLECTED TO DATE!
UPDATE: Because food supplies will be depleted as a result of high demand this year through the holidays, we are extending our food drive to help build up their inventory. We will continue offering free admission to guests bringing non-perishable food items to donate to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee on Mondays through January 27.
The Frist Center for the Visual Arts will continue its holiday tradition of offering free admission to guests bringing non-perishable food items to donate to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee on Mondays through December 30. The items most needed by Second Harvest are peanut butter, baby food and formula, canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta and cereal. "We anticipate an increase in demand for the next several months due to cuts to Food Stamp distributions," said Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest. "Food donations will help us respond to the need and ensure that families can put food on the table every night."
Last year, our generous visitors contributed almost 3,000 lbs. of food to Second Harvest.
