OneGenAway Mobile Pantry to Share Food

The food assistance nonprofit offes high-quality foods to anyone in need.

One Generation Away is bringing fresh produce, dry goods, dairy, bakery items and more to to the North Boulevard Church of Christ parking lot to give out to any Murfreesboro residents in need — completely for free.

One Generation Away, a food assistance nonprofit, has been operating its Mobile Pantry for nearly a decade, offering high-quality foods to anyone in need, no questions asked.

“You don’t have to show us any documents. You don’t have to tell us your annual income. You don’t even have to live in the city where we’re giving away food,” said Chris Whitney, founder and CEO of OneGenAway. “We don’t want to create any added barriers. If you need food, you just have to show up and receive.”
