The Nashville Food Project has been delivering food to the homeless, poor and less unfortunate since 2007. When the ministry began it was under the name "Mobile Loaves & Fishes".
In 2007 the ministry began working out of a kitchen at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Nashville. The ministry owned one truck for deliveries and would go into homeless camps and deliver bag lunches 3 days a week.
In 2009 a second catering truck was added and the 'Mobile Loaves & Fishes' moved to Woodmont Christian Church.
This past October the ministry became known as 'The Nashville Food Project' and useslocal volunteers and local funds to provide food for the poor and homeless.
Using food donated by local churches and restaurants, volunteer chefs prepare 100 meals Tuesday through Friday to distribute via their two food trucks to needy individuals living in weekly-rent hotels and homeless encampments around the city. (www.nashvillescene.com)
The Nashville Food Project does more than just make sandwiches and bags of chips...the ministry serves gourmet meals like you would find in restaurants as well as more common foods. Why not let those who are less fortunate enjoy good food?
Their goal is to provide the homeless and less fortunate with healthy, nutritious food.
