Kate Gosselin in Tennessee For The Second Harvest Food Bank on behalf of Feeding America: TimesNews.net
UPDATE: KINGSPORT — Kate Gosselin, star of The Learning Channel’s reality show “Kate Plus 8,” will make a special appearance at a “Kate Plus 8” food drive and celebrity bagging contest for Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee this morning at the Kingsport Food City store on Eastman Road. “The food bank and Feeding America are excited to have been selected as the charity for this segment of ‘Kate Plus 8 Giving Back,’ ” said Rhonda Chafin, local Second Harvest executive director. The show follows single mother Gosselin through the challenges and joys of raising eight children. “The food bank is asking for help from the community to meet the growing need through food drives like this,” Chafin said.
The need for food assistance in Northeast Tennessee continues to grow. Last year approximately 7.8 million pounds of food and grocery products were distributed by the food bank, serving more than 33,000 individuals each month through its agencies and special programs. Gosselin’s visit today follows a surprise visit to Johnson City’s North Side Elementary School Tuesday where she and her children, with camera crew, dropped off 100 snack bags to be handed out to students throughout the week. North Side Principal Sharon Pickering said Gosselin and the children spent the morning putting the snack bags together at Second Harvest before taking the assortments to the school. Pickering said the snack bags, which include items like peanut butter and soups, will be given to students by the school’s leadership team. While it was a short visit, Pickering said some of North Side’s students were lucky enough to talk with Gosselin’s children while the camera crew filmed the visit. The local food bank is a member of the Feeding America national food bank network. For more information, call 477-4053 or visit http://www.netfoodbank.org/
