Monthly Service Challenge

Each month, a new mission will be posted as motivation for us all to roll up our sleeves and serve our communities. Be sure to keep the Office of the First Lady in the loop by posting on social media using #TennesseeServes for a chance to be recognized as a Service Spotlight. Grab your friends, family, classmates or colleagues and join us as Tennessee Serves!


First Lady Maria Lee Serves at Second Harvest Food Bank

Tennessee Serves the Hungry

Join First Lady Maria Lee this month as Tennessee Serves the Hungry. As our state continues to heal, our food banks face an unprecedented demand and a shortage of volunteers. This month, First Lady Maria Lee is encouraging Tennesseans to join her in meeting that demand by serving the food insecure.

To those interested in joining this month's challenge, consider the following ways to serve:

  • Volunteer with one of five Feeding America Food Banks located in Tennessee; click here to find a location near you
  • Join a food distribution day at your county's local food bank
  • Start a food drive of your own by distributing fliers throughout your neighborhood and setting a box on your porch for donations; be sure to ask your local food bank for high-demand items

Remember to post on social media about how you participated in this month’s challenge using #TennesseeServes for a chance to be featured as one of our service spotlights!
