More than 60 Middle Tennessee schools have signed up to participate in this year's Food 2 Families School Food Drive.
Food 2 Families is an opportunity for our local schools not only to help fight hunger in Middle Tennessee, but also an opportunity to show school children that they too can make a difference in service of their community.
Now, the general public is invited to get involved by donating to the Food 2 Families Virtual Food Drive on behalf of a participating school. Of every $1 donated, 96 cents will go directly to Second Harvest's feeding programs.
To designate a school affiliation, please select the name of your school from the drop down menu on the donation page. All donations will fund programs within the county they originated.

ABOUT FOOD 2 FAMILIES
Over the past 30 years, Food 2 Families has collected over 5.6 million food items for Second Harvest Food Bank to be distributed in our local community.
Kroger, Cornerstone Financial Credit Union, the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, and other local businesses support this campaign by providing cash prizes and incentives for participating schools.
HOW IT WORKS
There's still time to enter your school! Click the link below and choose a time period before October 30 to implement your school's food drive. Be creative. Have classes challenge classes or schools challenge rival schools, whatever works for your school. Second Harvest representatives are happy to help you coordinate a successful campaign.
The first 30 elementary schools to signup will receive $100 and be eligible for incentive gifts, awards and a special pep rally at the school!
All middle schools that participate will have a chance to win one of three $500 prizes.
Area high schools will compete for cash prizes of $1,200, $700 and $500.
Of course the real winners will be the Middle Tennesseans that benefit from the foot that is donated.
