NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — More than 1,000 families-in-need have some extra food to enjoy for the holidays, thanks to some hardworking volunteers.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee teamed up with Nashville Rotary members to deliver around 1,900 holiday food boxes across the city.

Donations were filled with produce and canned goods.

Middle Tennessee Second Harvest President and CEO Nancy Keil says it's just one way to make the holidays a little brighter for some families.

"The community of Nashville is really stepping up, making a difference, making sure that our families, our neighbors have the food they need. Especially during the holiday season, when it's a time of joy and sharing, and giving."

This is the event's 18th year. Second Harvest officials estimate one in eight Middle Tennesseans struggle with hunger on a daily basis.
