Second Harvest Food Bank In Second Place For $1 Million Contest

We have an update on how you can help fight hunger in the Tri-Cities.

Second Harvest Food Bank and Good Samaritan Ministries are asking you to go to vote for Johnson City on Walmart's ?fighting hunger together? Facebook page.

With enough votes, the community could win up to $1 million dollars to fight hunger in the Tri-Cities.

We've learned, right now Johnson City is in second place behind Fresno, California, but winning first place could help feed people all across our region.

"That means $1 million dollars to buy food for this region that we could really use. We serve 38,000 individuals each month. We're serving people, and every day we need support," said Rhonda Chafin, executive director at Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee.

If the local Second Harvest Food Bank finishes in the top 20 nationwide, it receives a large cash prize.

By voting, you could be a big winner, too. A pair of Zac Brown Band tickets and an ipad are up for grabs.

Voting runs through the end of April. To vote for Second Harvest, visit
