Per the press release, Sensabaugh has the following to say:
“Hunger is an issue that everyone must stand up to. When one of us is hungry, we all are hungry. We all must take an active approach to combat this problem. Second Harvest is doing amazing things in the middle TN area and across the country to combat hunger and I am honored and grateful that have allowed us to partner with them.”
The additional distribution is expected to provide more than 125 families with additional resources to help feed themselves and their families.
