Become a Meal Partner
Is there a way food could support the work of your organization or community group? Consider becoming a meal partner! The Nashville Food Project works with a variety of mission-aligned partners to better support people facing barriers to accessing nutritious foods in our community, including after school programs, ESL classes, emergency shelters and more. By offering quality food support on a sliding scale basis to other nonprofits and community groups, this food helps create opportunities for our partners to focus energy and resources on their unique missions.
To be eligible for a meal partnership, groups must meet the following requirements:
Located in Middle Tennessee
Serve people facing economic, health, cultural or social barriers
Support a regularly scheduled, ongoing gathering or program that helps reduce some of those barriers
Have an average attendance of at least 20 people
Prioritize decreasing food waste
If receiving and handling food at your location, the facility must have clean dry storage and refrigeration. You must also either provide access to the facility or have a person available to receive all food deliveries.
