part of MVNU's partnership with Food For The Hungry, the Knox Needs
initiative addresses local issues of hunger. Knox Needs specifically
focuses on food insecurity and difficult living conditions within the
Knox County community. Food insecurity means that at least some
household members are uncertain of having, or unable to acquire, enough
food due to insufficient resources.
All funds raised will go toward providing meals and stable housing for families in Knox County.
