Over a dozen Bradley Arant Boult Cummings volunteers last month unloaded trucks, sorted more than 15,000 pounds of food and helped 114 Nashvillians assemble boxes of fresh produce and groceries that would feed their families for one to two weeks. With funding from Bradley Arant, the Second Harvest mobile distribution at the East Nashville mobile pantry site doubled in scope to include both perishable and non-perishable food.
“Bradley Arant and our volunteer team were honored to help our Nashville neighbors who struggle to feed their families nutritious meals during the summer, when school-age children do not have access to free and reduced-price meals,” said Lela Hollabaugh, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings partner and volunteer group leader. “We were all deeply humbled to witness the long line and gratitude of people who were thrilled to receive both fresh produce and grocery staples.”

The amount of donated fresh food, baked goods, and produce was amazing. Our people took the time to sort the food items to make it easier for the clients to “shop” for the items they needed.

The firm’s donation to Second Harvest Food Bank provided food staples, such as soup, canned vegetables and meat, chili, rice, spaghetti, peanut butter – which doubled the amount of food usually distributed at this Mobile Pantry location. Pictured: Ashleigh Swaggerty, Judy Hoskins, Peter Sales.
