It’s time for our seventh annual Combat Hunger Day! Help us give a black eye to one of the most crippling issues in our nation: hunger. At Manna Café, we distribute roughly 1.8 million pounds of food and 26,000 hot meals per year—so one of our main battles is keeping food on our shelves. Once again, we’re teaming up with 5-Star Media Group and area businesses to address this issue on a large scale.
This year, Combat Hunger takes place in November 2017. While we do food drives throughout the year, this is our biggest consolidated “push” here in Clarksville, and we hope you’ll join forces with us to combat hunger. Food collection stations will be set up at all three Walmarts, two Walmart Neighborhood Markets, all three Krogers, both Food Lions, GFS, Hilltop Market, and Dollar General Market—along with other businesses.
Combatting hunger on November 12 will require hundreds of volunteers coming together, handing out shopping lists at the stores, encouraging shoppers to make a donation, sorting and stacking the food as it comes into the warehouse, and assisting drivers as they pick up goods. It makes for a fun, exciting, rewarding day! The goal this year is to collect 60 thousands pounds of food via shoppers, who will pick up items to donate on their way out of the store, as well as monetary donations, which are also crucial. In fact, we can acquire four times more food with a dollar by purchasing from Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle TN than a typical shopper can! Don’t miss out on this vital and exciting day; help us help our fellow Clarksvillians.
