NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Frist Art Museum will offer free admission on Mondays now through Dec. 31 to guests bringing nonperishable food items for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
Since 2012, Frist visitors have donated more than 23,000 pounds of food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Look for the collection barrels next to the Visitor Services desk. The items most needed by Second Harvest are peanut butter, canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit and cereal.
"It is an unfortunate reality that one in eight people, including one in five children, struggle with hunger in our community,” said Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest. “We are so thankful for our continued partnership with the Frist and the collective generosity of its guests for helping provide food to our neighbors who need it most."
