This past month, Downtown Dental teamed with Dr. Damon Barbieri of Barbieri Orthodontics and approximately 20 other businesses in a joint effort to provide food for our Middle Tennessee community through Second Harvest Food Bank. Giving Back this Holiday Season with Second Harvest According to Second Harvest, there are 103,000 people in Davidson County who classify as food insecure*. While this number can seem overwhelming at first, organizations like Second Harvest are working hard to decrease the number of families who suffer from food insecurity every year. After learning the impact that Second Harvest is making in our community, we jumped on board to help!
