Chris and Elaine Whitney moved from St. Louis, MO, to Franklin, TN, in 2004 to start a church. Little did they know that, in the process of pastoring a church, One Generation Away would be birthed. In 2013, OneGenAway was established and in the first year distributed 400,000 pounds of food from the back of the Whitneys’ car. It has now grown to serve over 4.2 million meals to those in need throughout Middle Tennessee, Northern Alabama, the Florida panhandle, and disaster relief locations.
In November of 2018, Chris stepped down as the pastor of a local church to focus on OneGenAway full time and serve the community at large.
Chris and Elaine have been married since 1986 and have 3 daughters and 6 grandchildren who all live in Middle Tennessee.
