The Food for Kids Backpack program provides a bag full of healthy snacks and easily prepared meal items for children in need to take home and eat after school and on weekends. The program is offered through every school in our region and children are identified by their school nurse or counselors for the program. Over 4,100 children are now being served. Sponsors are secured every year so that every child in need of the Food for Kids program may be served.

Kids Cafe enables Food Bank agencies to provide food for children and youth programs where over 55% of children attending are at or below the poverty level.  
     
The Food Bank’s Summer Food Service Program fills the gap in child nutrition when school is out of session during the summer months.  The program is operated using food vendors and volunteers provided through the Corporation for National and Community Service ‘Summer VISTA’ programs. Children are also served through Kids Café programs that provide food for children in primarily low-income after school programs.

At-Risk Afterschool component of CACFP (Child and Adult Care Food Program): Second Harvest piloted this relatively new program in the spring 2012 with 3 sites.  We are now up to 5 sites – 2 supper only, 2 snack only and 1 serving snack and supper.  Second Harvest provides each of these sites with the food items necessary to prepare nutritious meals and snacks at no cost to our 5 sites.  We are currently helping serve over 215 children each day. Thank you to Feeding America and ConAgra Foods for your support!

Mobile School Pantry Program : Second Harvest has begun incorporating schools into our Mobile Food Pantry Program.  Operated in the same fashion as our regular MFP distributions, Mobile School Pantries provide fresh produce, dairy and canned goods to households with students living within a particular school zone.  Since the first distribution on March 22nd, 2012 through our latest distribution for Unicoi Public Schools in February 2012, we have had 25 distributions at 9 different schools in 5 of our 8 counties.  Through these distributions alone, we have given out over 47,760 pounds of food and served on average a total of 26 households at each distribution.  On average, nearly 100 individuals, including 43 children, have been served at each hour-long distribution.  

Mobile Food Pantry - Sometimes there is no Food Pantry or Soup Kitchen located where it is needed.  The Mobile Food Pantry of Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee comes to the rescue providing regular distributions of food and grocery products to fill these gaps in need in our region and get the food out where it is most needed reaching thousands of people in need.  Interested organizations and sponsors are needed to host Mobile Food Pantry distributions in various communities throughout the region.

Food Rescue : Perishable and prepared food is collected from restaurants, caterers, grocery stores, and other food vendors then redistributed to agencies making more nutritious food available to people in need. Perishable food is also distributed through the Mobile Food Pantry program.
