OneGenAway to Give Out Free Groceries at Ashland City Elementary


One Generation Away is bringing its Mobile Pantry back to Ashland City to share groceries with anyone in need.

The nonprofit organization brings tractor-trailers full of fresh produce, dry goods, bakery items, dairy, and more to different locations throughout Middle Tennessee and gives them to individuals and families in need through a drive-thru model. The best part? No registration is required, and there are no qualifying questions asked.

“We want to be available to anyone who needs a little support as they go through a tough time or are just getting their footing in this new season,” said Chris Whitney, founder and CEO of OneGenAway. “That’s why we open our Mobile Pantry to anyone — no need to share your address, income, ID or anything.”

The drive-thru Mobile Pantry will take place at the Ashland City Elementary STEM Academy parking lot at 108 Elizabeth Street from 8:45 to 10 a.m., or until all the food has been given away. Volunteers are encouraged to arrive at 7:30 a.m. to help sort and distribute the food.

OneGenAway operates its Mobile Pantry nearly every Saturday in a different location. To learn more about OneGenAway and its food assistance programs, visit
