NASHVILLE, TN - Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee held an educational series on tour called Hunger 101. Hunger 101 is aimed for the children in schools, summer camps, and more to let the kids know about how they can help people in need ever since they're a kid.

Hunger 101 was on tour and visit Pip and Pickles Farm, where a summer camp called A New Leaf was held for children aged 8 to 12. Second Harvest was there to help teach kids about hunger in the community, and encourage them to help a person in need and make a difference. “It’s important to learn about how you can help people who don’t have enough food to eat,” said Hailee, one of the campers.

Hunger 101 was previously hosted at Second Harvest’s Nashville or Camden distribution centers, but now they are traveling across Nashville to visit schools, campsites like Pip and Pickles Farm, and community centers. The curriculum can be customized and more personal to each audience in different venues. The decision to pivot from a permanent venue to take it on the road came after the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The response has been incredibly positive", according to Corrine, who oversees Second Harvest's educational program. “The kids love how hands-on the activity is and the adults have commented on how great it is to see kids really diving into learning about hunger and what they can do to help.", she added.

The Hunger 101 is a child educational program from Second Harvest, which is aimed towards children ages 6 to 12. The curriculum is specifically designed for them and can hold around 4 to 40 children, with customizable sites and schedules that can be managed.

If you're looking to bring Hunger 101 and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to your event, you can contact Corrine via email at, and visit their official website for more info.
