One Generation Away: Growth, Expansion & Door Step Pantry

The Doorstep Pantry allows those facing barriers of transportation and mobility to receive the food they need, delivered right to their door.

Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Chris Whitney, CEO and Founder of One Generation Away, who highlights the Middle Tennessee-based nonprofit organization on a mission to share hope, honor and dignity through food.

Founded by Chris and Elaine Whitney, OneGenAway rescues high-quality, surplus food from grocery stores, restaurants, farms, and caterers and redistributes that food to individuals and families experiencing food insecurity.

During the interview, Chris talks about their growth and expansion of efforts over the last decade, the increased need with an average of 1 in 10 adults and 1 in 7 children being food insecure, and how their collaborative model creates impact on all sides.

Chris discusses their Mobile Pantry, where fresh produce, dry goods, and more are provided at drive-thru food distributions — no questions asked. He talks about their new Door Step Pantry powered by OneGenAway, which delivers food to those in need and overcomes transportation issues for those individuals and families who cannot make it to the Mobile Pantry. Chris also shares how the community can get involved in supporting their efforts and why serving is so important to building a compassionate and caring community.
