Senator Corker Visits Dogwood Terrace

May 31, 2013 | By | Resident Initiatives

Senator Bob Corker recently handed out food at Dogwood Terrace as part of Second Harvest Food Bank’s Mobile Food Pantry.

The senator said he decided to join in the effort after his 24-year-old daughter, Emily, participated in a Second Harvest food distribution, and encouraged her father to do the same. Emily Corker works for Feed USA.

Second Harvest’s Mobile Food Pantry serves 45 communities per month and more than 23,000 individuals, including a significant number of seniors and families with children. During Fiscal Year 2012, approximately 539,000 pounds of perishable and non-perishable food was distributed to people in need throughout an eight-county region.

The Mobile Food Pantry visits Dogwood Terrace and other public housing developments in Kingsport about once a month.

Thank you Senator Corker for caring about your fellow Tennesseans!
