Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
OneGenAway Is a non-religious 501c3 that was founded in 2010 by Chris Whitney. Chris and his wife, Elaine have a desire to end hunger in Middle Tennessee.
OneGenAway raises money to purchase groceries in massive amounts at discounted rates. At each OneGenAway food distribution, we gather volunteers, the 18 wheelers drop off the food on pallets and the group of volunteers separate the quantities of food into grocery bags per family. When all the food is finished being bagged, we then station volunteers at different tables. Some volunteers help recipients push grocery carts through a line and pick up each variety of food while going down the line of tables. The volunteer "cart pushers" then assist the recipient to their car to unload the groceries. The recipients usually end up with about one to two weeks worth of groceries. OneGenAway is different than most pantries. The recipients must only be in need of the food to qualify. The food distribution days are usually on Saturdays from 8am- about 12noon. Locations vary.
