About

The Nashville Food Project was born from the idea that ALL people should have access to the food they want and need. We know that one in six people in Nashville lacks access to enough food to sustain a healthy lifestyle. But we also know that more than 40% of all the food in our city goes to waste. Solutions to hunger take much more than simple handouts. Poverty, unemployment, low wages and escalating housing costs all contribute to the challenges that the most vulnerable residents of our city face.

We believe food can be a powerful tool to foster health, belonging and justice in our community. That’s why we...

Grow — In our Gardens, we grow organic food intensively, and share resources with others interested in growing their own food.

Cook — In our Kitchens, we use recovered, donated and garden-grown food to prepare and cook made-from-scratch meals.

Share — From our Food Trucks, we share nourishing meals in partnership with local poverty-disrupting nonprofits and community groups.

The Nashville Food Project embraces a vision of vibrant community food security in which everyone in Nashville has access to the food they want and need through a just and sustainable food system.

Working toward these goals requires powerful, creative community collaboration... and we would love for you to be a part of it!

We provide an online donation platform whereby donors can locate and donate to all US based 501(c)(3) organizations through Generous Charitable Inc. (“GCI”), a donor-advised fund that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. GCI sends all funds donated (minus a small processing fee) to the organizations to whom funds were designated by donors using the Generous platform. (See our Terms of Service for more information) GCI is independent from Generous and maintains a separate board of directors; GCI works closely with Generous in connection with distribution of funds in a low-cost and effective manner to one or more nonprofits and charitable organizations identified on our Site (collectively, “Charitable Causes”).
