Nourishing Change

Nourishing Change is our monthly donation program through which we accept donations at our registers on behalf of a selected organization or project. Since the program’s start in April 2012, we’ve raised over $260,680.00 for 63 organizations.

THIS MONTH’S recipient:


Throughout September, your donations will help support the Kid’s Boost Bag program which provides food for children in need. Each bag is filled with fresh produce and nutritious, kid-friendly foods. Our goal is to provide over 1,200 bags of food for this program through FISH Hospitality Pantries.

In November, we will be collecting change to provide free food to people in need who receive services at non-profit health care clinics in Knox, Union, Blount, and Claiborne counties
• Objective: Stocking of food pantries in Knox, Union, Blount, and Claiborne counties
