From now through Dec. 31, the Frist Art Museum is offering free admission to guests who donate nonperishable food items for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.

Wondering what to take with you? The items most needed by Second Harvest are peanut butter, canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit and cereal. Once at the Museum, you'll find the collection barrels next to the Visitor Services desk.

Frist visitors have donated more than 23,000 pounds of food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee since 2012.

What they said

"It is an unfortunate reality that one in eight people, including one in five children, struggle with hunger in our community,” said Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest. “We are so thankful for our continued partnership with the Frist and the collective generosity of its guests for helping provide food to our neighbors who need it most."
