SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK OF NORTHEAST TENNESSEE feeds the hungry by securing, storing and distributing food donations through qualified nonprofit charities and Food Bank programs in the eight-county region. Second Harvest is the only Food Bank serving Carter, Greene, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi and Washington Counties in Tennessee and has led this effort for 26 years. We have been designated as a four-star charity by Charity Navigator for financial health, accountability and transparency.
SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK HOPES TO BE IN OUR NEW WAREHOUSE IN 2013 - Plans are underway to relocate from our current location in Gray, Tennessee to a recently-acquired warehouse in Kingsport, TN. The 112,087-square-foot property includes 15 acres of land.
- Moving to the new space allows us to increase our food sorting, warehouse storage and office spaces. Along with increased storage capacity the new facility improves our delivery and receiving system and enhances our programs and services to make Food Bank agencies better equipped to serve the needs of the hungry in our region.
- Renovations include structural repairs to the roof, overhead doors and metal building panels. Warehouse renovations include building a containment room, work area, agency shopping/loading, loading docks, freezers/coolers, racking, a Food for Kids Program work area, sprinkler system and equipment.
