In challenging times, Nissan is stepping up to the plate. Nissan North America and the Nissan Neighbors program are doubling annual contributions to food banks in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, securing 1 million meals for families in Middle Tennessee and Mississippi.

One of the beneficiaries of the Nissan Neighbors program is our state’s own Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee. Nissan is the food bank’s first Mission Partner thanks to annual donations of at least $100,000, and Nissan employees often volunteer at the organization’s warehouses in Nashville and Smyrna.

“A lot of industries are struggling right now, so we were truly blown away by Nissan’s generosity in doubling their annual gift to $200,000,” said Second Harvest President and CEO Nancy Keil. “As we continue to face so much uncertainty, this donation will ensure 800,000 meals are provided to our neighbors in need.”

Nissan has also donated five vehicles valued at over $100,000 to Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee to help the organization in its goals.

Nissan Neighbors also supports the Mississippi Food Network and Our Daily Bread, extending its community-focused support to families in The Hospitality State. The increase in donations to those two organizations will cover more than 200,000 meals.

Gateway Nissan in Greeneville, Tennessee, is proud to represent a country that cares so much about Tennesseans. To find the latest vehicles from Nissan, check out our selection online or visit our showroom in person.
