We help people feed themselves.
Gardening. Every April, we distribute seeds, plants and fertilizer -at no cost- to more than 1,000 families to grow their own food. Volunteers coordinated by the TVA Retirees take applications, package the supplies and then distribute them. The families in this program take great pride in their gardens - and we take great pride in the fact that they are able to grow the food they put on their tables.
Meals on Wheels. Thanks to hundreds of volunteers, the Meals on Wheels program may be the most visible and well-known service the agency provides. Volunteers deliver hot meals to the elderly, homebound and disabled clients Monday - Friday. On Thursday and Friday a frozen meal is also included for the client to heat over the weekend ensuring the person has a nutritious meal 7-days a week.
