Each October, we celebrate our volunteers and the contribution that they make to The Nashville Food Project. In the past six months alone, volunteers have shared over 6,000 hours in our programs, a value of $154,560. This has made huge impact on our work to nourish our neighbors, and we've got some big news. A generous donor is ready to TRIPLE the value of these volunteer hours with a match of up to $154,560 for donations received in the month of October to our A Longer Table capital campaign!
To reach this goal, we’re asking our volunteers to consider setting up a crowdfunding campaign to ask their friends, family, and community to match their volunteer time with financial gifts. This support will help secure our future for years to come, and will honor the incredible impact YOU have made on The Nashville Food Project and our community.
