Second Harvest

Continuing our tradition

The Second Harvest Food Drive has become a major component of the week-long Spaghetti Supper Event.   Our continued partnership with Second Harvest helps fight hunger in Middle Tennessee.

We look forward to continuing this important initiative to serve the Nashville community.

Why it matters.

In Middle Tennessee, 1 in 8 adults and 1 in 7 children struggle with hunger every day.

Facts: 7 million pounds of food rescued from 280 grocery stores

932 thousand pounds of food distributed each week

Over 42 million meals distributed every year

Our Challenge:

Each year MBA participates in News Channel 2 Food 2 Families food drive by fundraising on behalf of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to support their mission of feeding hungry people and working to solve hunger issues in our community.

Because of the outstanding generosity of the MBA families, faculty, and staff, MBA has won the News Channel 2 Food 2 Families food drive contest for the past 9 years!  MBA donated 120,581 meals through monetary and food collections, which averaged over 144 items per student.  

How can you help?  Donate food. Donate money.

Donate both ways: on campus so your son(s) can be actively involved and online for maximum impact.

Critical items needed: canned soup, canned fruits/veggies, peanut butter, canned chicken/tuna, cereal and pasta.
