Pete Nebhut

Ten years ago Pete Nebhut read an article in the newspaper that said Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee needed food. He responded by buying a dozen frozen turkeys and bringing them to the food bank. He came back a week or so later and met with the Development Director. He learned from their meeting that our agencies had a need for freezers and refrigerators. He visited local businesses and found a donor who gave the agencies what they needed. He has been working with the development department as a volunteer ever since. He was heavily involved with calling on capital campaign donors and was instrumental in raising nearly 9 million dollars to build the food bank’s current facility. Today he works tirelessly as a Volunteer Fundraiser and leader of the Development Committee. He volunteers with the development department to introduce, cultivate and build relationships, and has acquired multiple major gifts that fund many of the food bank’s programs. Over the years, Pete has worked to bring in tens of thousands of dollars in major gifts for the food bank. As a retired, very successful businessman, he also shares his wealth of knowledge about business, technology, operations, and marketing with the development team. His insight, perseverance, and wisdom make him an invaluable asset of the development team and of Second Harvest Food Bank.
