Food Fight Against Hunger

The devastation of homelessness is a clear and present threat here in Putnam County. You and I are the solution.

Please join us in making an investment into the people and families in our community to overcome short-term critical needs that, without intervention, threaten to spiral into long-term homelessness. Some people are the cost of simple car repair or a vital prescription away from surrendering the keys to their family’s apartment back to the landlord and slipping over the edge into homelessness.

We are asking for a strong, community driven response to provide critical funding that will go directly to sustain the efforts of both Cookeville Human Fund and Independence Again's Recovery Kitchen programs.

These solutions driven programs receive no government tax dollars. They are 100% community funded by caring people like you and me and, without our support, will fail to keep pace with the growing struggles and critical needs of individuals in crisis in Putnam County.

Any amount you can give will be 100% used to provide the hand up your neighbor needs to get them back on their feet. Isn’t that a great investment into your community?
