Thousands of families in Nashville struggle to get food, especially right now when children don't have access to school meal plans. The High School frequently holds food drives before Spring Break and Fall Break to help Edgehill families who rely on school breakfast and lunch. Consider donating food or money to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to help these families during this difficult time. You can also volunteer at Second Harvest to help sort and package food. Click here for more information on the food bank’s needs and procedures during COVID-19.
