Feed Knoxville

Ok, all you savvy stock-pilers. Do I have an event for you?! Thanks to Coupon Katie for this tip: This Saturday, August 28 is the Feed Knoxville 2010 event at World's Fair Park from 3-8pm. The goal is to collect 100,000 items of food to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.

Second Harvest in Knoxville has seen an increase of 28% in demands for food services this past year. An average of 155,000 people are being helped every month. This is our chance to come together as a city to assist with our most basic need: food.

Feed Knoxville 2010 will have lots of FREE family activities including inflatables, live music and FREE food. For every food item you donate, you will be given a ticket that enters you into some great give-aways (motorcycles, vacations, and spa packages).

Couponing has enabled me to stock up on canned goods for very little. I have several soups, cans of tomatoes, and boxes of cereal I can donate. Tip: Check expiration dates. I'm planning to take the whole family; hope to see you there!

If you can't make it on Saturday, consider dropping some donations at three select Chick Fil-A stores to get a free meal. For every three donations, you get a free chicken sandwich though 8/27, 5-8pm. Click here for the details.
