- Jai Templeton, Commissioner Tennessee Department of Agriculture
Shooting Hunger is an opportunity for people and organizations involved in Agriculture to collectively address the need to fight hunger. It’s a logical thing for those of us involved in food production to provide resources to get meals to hungry people. It has been an honor to have had the opportunity to assist in this effort the past couple of years and I am looking forward to bigger things to come as more people/organizations become involved in this effort.

Supporting hunger relief through events like Shooting Hunger is so much more than a day of fun fellowship and healthy competition with friends. It's about paving the way and creating a hopeful future for so many individuals and families in need. Tosh Farms has deep agricultural roots, dating all the way back to 1913. Teaming up with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee provides us with the opportunities to support an organization with the same values and goals as ours and to give back to others. We'd love for you to join us in our efforts to help stop hunger!

Farm Credit Mid-America is excited to be a part of Shooting Hunger as we partner with others from the Agricultural industry to provide food produced by farmers to feed hungry Tennesseans.

Centennial Bank was proud to be a sponsor of the Shooting Hunger event held at Carroll County Shooting Sports Park on June 8, 2017. It was a great time while supporting an even greater cause. We are honored to be affiliated with an organization like Second Harvest Food Bank who strives to provide food to individuals in need within our local area.

A few years ago we had quite a bit of snowfall in Middle Tennessee and the roads were shut down and schools were closed. I was at home with my wife and our two sons working on a project. We had a big fire in the basement and a big pot of gumbo simmering on the stove. I looked across the living room and noticed that my wife (who’s a school teacher) was crying. When I asked her why she was crying she said, “I was just wondering if all those kids who depend on the school food backpacks have enough to eat.” Hunger is a problem in Tennessee and food insecurity is a problem for more Tennesseans than most of us realize. I’m humbled to be a part of Shooting Hunger and I’m grateful for the outpouring of support from Tennessee agriculture and Tennessee businesses and thankful for shooters who have come from across the country to participate in Shooting Hunger events.
- Bryan Wright, Director of Membership Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation
Tennessee’s farming community has always been eager to help a neighbor. I can’t think of a better way than Shooting Hunger for friends to come together to make a difference in the lives of hungry Tennesseans. Tennessee Farmers Co-op is pleased to be involved in such a meaningful and worthwhile program that can potentially impact so many people. Farmers are always focused on helping feed the world, but this effort allows us to narrow that support directly to those in our communities.
