Hankook Tire Partners With Second Harvest Food Bank

The company will sponsor a truck and provide new tires to deliver 36 million meals annually.

Leading global tire maker Hankook Tire is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to fight hunger by sponsoring a truck and providing new tires, as well as other activities to support the area. The Hankook truck will play a critical role in assisting Second Harvest’s fleet to drive 650,000 miles and deliver 36 million meals annually to those in need throughout West and Middle Tennessee. 

In addition to sponsoring the Hankook truck and donating tires, Hankook will partner with Second Harvest to hold three Mobile Pantries in the Nashville and Clarksville areas that will provide 60,000 pounds of food for 750 families. Hankook will also work with Second Harvest to provide food boxes for local veterans and their families. Additionally, Hankook will sponsor Second Harvest’s annual Feeding Hope media campaign to raise awareness for hunger insecurity and raise funds to feed hungry children, families and seniors during the holiday season. 

“One in eight people, including one in seven children, currently struggles with food insecurity”, said Nancy Keil, President & CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. “As hunger is such a prevalent issue throughout Middle Tennessee and the entire country, our organization is constantly working to further hunger solutions in our community. We are grateful for Hankook’s partnership in helping us achieve that mission and serve those in need throughout Middle Tennessee.” 

“Hankook Tire is proud to partner with Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee to fight hunger and feed our neighbors in need,” said Sooil Lee, President of Hankook Tire America Corp. “As many rural areas are affected by food insecurity, we knew that it was not only important to donate to this cause, but to also provide mobility solutions to help deliver meals to the areas that need it most through Second Harvest’s Mobile Pantry initiative. Through this partnership, we hope to help drive out hunger in Middle and West Tennessee.”
