Metro schools to distribute food boxes at two Antioch locations

C456772E-EFBA-4491-AE59-FD7FFFAD9871Working in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office, Second Harvest Food Bank, United Way, and Hands on Nashville, Metro Public Schools will be distributing food boxes to families that might be struggling during the winter weather. Two distribution locations are in Antioch.

The 2,400 boxes are provided by Second Harvest Food Bank.

The boxes will be distributed Monday between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

The Antioch locations are Apollo Middle School, 631 Richards Road; and Cole Elementary Family Resource Center, 5060 Colemont Drive.

Other locations include:

  • Carter Lawrence Elementary School
  • Glencliff High Family Resource Center
  • Madison Middle Family Resource Center
  • Maplewood High Family Resource Center
  • Napier Elementary Family Resource Center
  • Pearl-Cohn High Family Resource Center
  • Shwab Elementary
  • Tusculum Elementary
  • Warner Elementary

Bordeaux Early Learning Center, Park Avenue Elementary and DuPont Hadley Middle Prep will not have food boxes available as they did on Thursday. Location changes are based on the demand seen and need expressed last week.

Each site will have around 200 boxes with items like pasta and sauce, peanut butter, canned soups and other non-perishable items. If families have questions about distribution sites, hours or have trouble accessing them, they can call United Way’s 2-1-1 Helpline or the Metro Schools Customer Service Center at (615) 259-INFO (4636).


Food boxes are provided by Second Harvest with help from volunteers through Hands on Nashville. Family Resource Centers are a partnership between Metro Schools and United Way. Distribution locations were determined according to data on student need from Metro Schools and in cooperation with location partners.
