Sponsors

Food, friends, and fellowship help people become more neighborly.  Our local sponsors ARE our neighbors…literally. They lift us up and engage with our community center and thrift store on a daily basis. They stop by with food. They stop by with a check. They deliver “good junk” to our thrift store. Other national sponsors reach out to Mooresburg, TN…they wish they could visit and experience the beautiful mountain views. Our national sponsors believe in what we’re doing and send their support.

The Mazon FoundationMAZON (a Jewish response to hunger) is helping us fight the good fight against hunger in rural America. Mazon supports community-based organizations in rural and remote areas of the United States…such as Mooresburg, Tennessee.  This is a pilot project made possible by generous funding from the Walmart Foundation. Walmart Foundation depends on MAZON to find struggling rural communities dealing with food insecurity. MAZON is currently helping Mooresburg, Tennessee become a hunger-free neighborhood. Founded in 1985, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is dedicated to preventing and alleviating hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds. MAZON means “food” or “sustenance” in Hebrew.

Mooresburg Community Association responds to the immediate need for senior meal delivery in this remote region of upper East Tennessee. Long term, we address the issue of social isolation and strengthen the community with activities and programs that draw people in. In our role as an anti-hunger organization, we bring the citizens of Mooresburg together to nourish the body and soul.

During Spring and Summer months, The Lakeview Fire Department holds monthly tractor pulls. If you’ve never been to a tractor pull, then you definitely experience this type of event. It celebrates rural life and farming. Definitely add this to your bucket list. A portion of the proceeds goes to help Mooresburg Community Center’s Meals in the Hills program.
