Second Harvest Announces First ‘Community Council’

By Laken Bowles. CREATED Aug 26, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee has announced a new campaign in an effort to continue the fight against hunger.

The non-profit recently launched its first Community Council, a group consisting of community leaders, local athletes, entertainers, and other personalities who support the food bank’s mission.

Mayor Karl Dean and Michael Griffin, along with Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Country Music duo Florida Georgia Line, were among those included on the inaugural council.

“I'd like to thank each and every one of our community council members who are with us and those who are not for their continuous dedication to fighting hunger in Tennessee,” Jaynee Day said on Tuesday. “Your leadership will, without a doubt, ensure increased awareness of our mission to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community.”

The new council members didn't waste any time Tuesday afternoon. The group stuffed backpacks full of non-perishable food items to give to children in need.
