Processing Food for Hunger Relief

by Ed Nicholson

The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee (Nashville) has a unique USDA-inspected food processing facility in their food bank that produces "boil in the bag" food for hunger and disaster relief.

In addition to producing for their own agencies–food pantries, backpack programs, etc.–they also produce for other Feeding America food banks around the country.

Scott Burleson, director of manufacturing for the food bank, describes the operation in the video above.

This is a great example of innovative solutions being applied to ongoing challenges.
