Mayor Karl Dean Announces City-Wide Food Drive

Now thru November 23, Nashville Mayor Karl Dean is encouraging all Davidson County employees and residents to participate in a city-wide Feeding Hope Challenge Food Drive to help Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee meet the increased demand for emergency food assistance.  (One in 8 Tennesseans will need that assistance this holiday season.)


You can drop off non-perishable food donations at any Metro government office, including Police, Fire, Libraries, the Historic Courthouse, and Metro Water.  The most-needed items include peanut butter, canned chicken and tuna, canned vegetables, soup, and fruit, and dried pasta.

For more information or for additional drop-off locations, please contact Second Harvest’s Food and Funds Drive Manager at (615) 329-3491 or visit
