Our Food Trucks
Each week, The Nashville Food Project serves over 600 nutritious, made-from-scratch meals in Nashville’s working poor and homeless communities. We serve meals in seven different neighborhoods on a weekly basis. Teams of three to six volunteers drive a TNFP food truck to a specific location on the same day each week to serve a free, nutritious meal. During the growing season, fresh produce may also be stocked on the truck to be given away in areas where people have access to kitchens but little access to fresh food. In addition to meeting immediate food needs, the trucks offer an opportunity for volunteers to practice hospitality and engage in transformative relationships. Sharing meals is a basic and sacred way that we find connection with others. Our mobility allows us to make these connections across social, economic and cultural barriers.
Meal service is typically handled by assigned volunteer teams; however, we do offer “drop in” truck opportunities for volunteers. Visit our partner, Hands On Nashville, to sign up for one of these truck runs.
