Food to the Rescue

or FTTR, a 501c3 non-profit organization, based in Cookeville, TN delivers meals to local children which otherwise would not have food during seasonal school breaks.  FTTR partners with local businesses, volunteers, and delivery persons to assist in distributing meals to children enrolled in our program. We currently serve the Greater Putnam County, Tennessee area.


According to recent studies, one in five children in Middle Tennessee does not know from where the next meal will come. There is a significant food insecurity issue in the Putnam County community. The goal of FTTR is to ensure that time away from school does not cause our local children to go hungry. Please visit our 'Get Involved' page to see how you can help us continue feeding hope to the children that need it most! Or Click on VOLUNTEER to help with our next distribution!
