Second Harvest gives out turkeys, hams and traditional fixings

The event was part of Second Harvest's Thanksgiving distribution and ran from 10 a.m. through 12 p.m.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — On Thursday, families had a chance to get some traditional Thanksgiving food from the Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee. Before the event, they were encouraging guests to arrive early so they would have the best chance to grab a box of food before they run out.

The Holiday Mobile Distribution event started at 10 a.m. and ran through 12 p.m. on November 17, at Second Harvest Food Bank's warehouse.

The boxes were expected to include turkeys, hams, fresh produce and traditional fixings.

Second Harvest helps keep groceries on the shelves of food banks across East Tennessee, working across 18 counties while also hosting food drives where people can get boxes of food if they need them.

Anyone who wants to help them continue fighting food insecurity and hunger can donate online.
