Second Harvest Food Bank is a distribution center that services 18 counties in East Tennessee. In 2011, they distributed more than 12 million pounds of food to the needy.

"We do it because the community supports us and we're so grateful for that," said Elaine Streno, Executive Director.

If you're interested in getting involved, a great time to get started is Sunday, October 21 at the annual Chili Cook-off.

For information on volunteering for the event, or just attending and tasting some good chili, visit Second Harvest's website.
