These events have raised enough funds to provide over 600,000 meals for our neighbors in need in Middle and West Tennessee through the partnership of Second Harvest Food Bank and MidSouth Food Bank.
During this year’s event, Ford (a title sponsor) will be hosting a Fill-A-Ford food drive to benefit our partner agencies in Carroll County. The Shooting Hunger team is asking for some help to kick this food drive off.
Bring canned food items to the Carroll County Mayor’s office in Huntingdon by Wednesday, June 6 at Noon.
All food raised in the county will stay in the county to feed our seniors, families and children in need.
