“Beardsley Community Farm is grateful for the Scarecrow Foundation's efforts to raise awareness and funds for dozens of hunger relief efforts in Knoxville!  It takes a village to work together and care for one another, and Scarecrow knows how to share the love across the community in fun and engaging ways. We especially love how youth are engaged in the process while learning about real life issues that affect vulnerable populations in our city.”

“Ladies of Charity recently participated in one of the many fundraising events hosted by Scarecrow Foundation.  The awareness of our nonprofit increased as we found new ways to promote our emergency assistance program. Participating in a fundraising event coordinated by the Scarecrow Foundation is fun, involved and takes commitment from the sponsor and the nonprofit.  Working together and having the opportunity to share with other community partners was the highlight of Fight Hunger Week. Ladies of Charity will definitely be involved with other Scarecrow Foundation events benefitting the hungry in Knox County.  Their volunteers commit to the project and get results!”

"Scarecrow has helped agencies like Volunteer Ministry Center spread the word about food scarcity and the effective ways to end hunger.   When you attend an event with the Scarecrow behind it, you know that a family, a man, a woman, or child will benefit.  Look for the Scarecrow when you are considering your next day or night of entertainment!”

"I can't say enough how thankful we are to the Scarecrow Foundation and the extremely dedicated volunteers who make that organization such a big success. Their enthusiasm, creativity, and teamwork make us feel more like part of a family than just another charity for which they are raising money."

“Second Harvest Food Bank is providing 1.1. million meals a month throughout our 18 county service area. This daunting task could not happen without the support of our community, especially organizations like Scarecrow Foundation. We are grateful to them for their long standing support of our Food for Kids program.  We presently are feeding 11,472 children in 259 schools thanks to Scarecrow Foundation and other generous donors in East Tennessee.”

"It is never easy to get the word out about senior hunger and isolation, but every year the Scarecrow Foundation takes our message out to a new group of volunteers and donors. And those folks respond!  Thank you Scarecrow for taking the concept of food insecurity seriously and pitching in to help."

“Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) enjoyed working with The Scarecrow Foundation during <em>Fight for Hunger</em> week. Their representatives asked lots of good questions about KARM’s guests, and brainstormed about how they could better work alongside us as we minister to Knoxville’s homeless and low-income citizens. We hope to work together again soon with The Scarecrow Foundation.”
