NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF)  — Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee officials said that a group fundraising door-to-door on its behalf in Nashville neighborhoods are "scammers."

Marketing officer Ally Parsons said the group Farmhouse Veggies was going through the city asking for donations in the name of the food group.

"Second Harvest is not affiliated in any way with Farmhouse Veggies and does not solicit monetary donations door-to-door," Parsons said. "Upon hearing these reports, Second Harvest officials immediately contacted the appropriate authorities, and the matter is being investigated. We ask that any of our friends who have donated to this organization please report it to the Attorney General’s office."

Parsons said for those who want to make a donation to Second Harvest, go to secondharvestmidtn.org.
