Food City is accepting donations of non-perishable foods through Aug. 28.
The drive is in conjunction with NASCAR's race Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway. Four-time Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon and Hendrick Motorsports have teamed with AARP in promoting the drive.
Donation vouchers for $1, $3 and $5 will be available for purchase at select Food City locations.
Second Harvest distributes food to some 200 food pantries in eight counties.
