WIPING HUNGER OFF THE FACE OF AMERICA
One Generation Away distributes healthy foods to families throughout Middle Tennessee that currently do not have access to food sources due to economic and physical barriers.
One Generation Away
Everyone in America should have access to healthy, good food.
OneGenAway is a non-profit 501(c)3 that works to bring fresh, healthy food right to people in need. We strive to eliminate food desserts in the low income neighborhoods in America.
Food deserts are defined as parts of the country where citizens lack access to fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthy whole foods due to lack of grocery stores, lack of transportation, and economic hardship.
We serve the home-bound elderly, school children, the working poor of our country, and more.
We do this by rescuing food seven days a week from local grocery stores and restaurants such as, Whole Foods, Costco, GFS, Publix, Outback Steakhouse, Aldi, and many others.
Then, each month, OneGenAway, with the help of many volunteers, brings food right to neighborhoods in need by arriving with truckloads of good food… mobile food pantries… delivered right to the streets of neighbors in need on Saturday mornings all around Middle Tennessee and beyond.
YOU can join us by volunteering to help us serve food at an upcoming food distribution.
15,000-25,000 lbs. of food will be dropped off in a parking lot, where volunteers will be waiting to sort and distribute it all to our neighbors in need. We pride ourselves on providing fresh and healthy foods, as well as things that are easily prepared and cooked. We do not ask questions or have requirements for people who can receive food.

Natural Disasters cause crisis. Hurricanes like Harvey and Maria cause billions of dollars in damage and thousands of people are displaced. The national guard is called in and the news is flooded with images of devastation and the heroic acts of first responders. But once the reporters leave, and FEMA has done their initial work, the incredible need of the people impacted by natural disasters persists.
