One Love Day



STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY LIZ LYONS

Each year, the City of Knoxville’s Summer in the City interns spend six weeks embedded in City departments. In addition to completing departmental tasks, interns collaborate on a group project. This year’s class tackled the major issue of hunger in our community with a campaign to raise awareness as well as donations. They named the campaign #FeedKnox and made their goal to reach as many people as possible to donate their time, money or canned goods to area charities that work to prevent and resolve hunger. The campaign culminated with a party at Christenberry Recreation Center. Voodoo Cadillac, a band comprised of current and former Knoxville police officers, entertained the crowd with blues rock hits. The night concluded with a sing-along of the song that inspired intern advisor Kent Johnson to suggest the project’s mission and name: “One Love” by Bob Marley.
