Chapter 1143 (Greeneville)
Chapter 240 (Hendersonville)
In 2009, Chapter 240 consolidated and moved its 2 Food Banks into 1 located in Hendersonville. The Chapter serves disadvantaged veterans and their families plus survivors of Sumner County. We are open every Saturday from 9AM – 11AM, and we are available for appointments for those unable to attend our regular distribution.Since 2009, we have only missed being open 4 times. Three times for inclement weather and we were closed this past Christmas.
Upon consolidation of the Food Banks, the Chapter applied for and was awarded a $15,000 grant in order to begin purchasing food items from 2nd Harvest Food Bank in Nashville. The following year, we were awarded $10,000.
We have now grown to a point where we now also receive donations from community churches, businesses and individuals.
For a veteran to receive food support, we necessarily had to implement a rigorous application process due to several early folks who attempted to scam us. However, using this process, we have discovered that we learn more about the veteran where suggestions for employment, claims, etc. can be made.
