NC5 Employees Help Second Harvest Food Bank


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Instead of sleeping in on the Saturday morning before Memorial Day, several NewsChannel 5 employees were out helping the needy.

Employees from different departments and their families packed food boxes at the Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee facility in Nashville.

"This will help a lot of families," said Marina Delgadillo, director of marketing and communications at Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.

For two hours, they sorted and packed more than 6,272 pounds of donated food.

A lot of the contributions reflected the recent Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, which is supported by members of the National Association of Letter Carriers. In 2007, the event, created by the National Association of Letter Carriers and in conjunction with the U.S. Postal Service and the AFL-CIO, delivered more than 70 million pounds of food nationwide.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee provides food and personal care products to more than 500 nonprofit partner agencies throughout 46 Middle and West Tennessee counties. Its partners include food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters as well as foster care facilities, senior centers, group homes, and youth enrichment programs.
