our MOBILE MEALS PROGRAM
This is one of our most active programs! Many of the seniors we serve are homebound, or have very limited ability to travel around without the help of others. Through mobile meals, we provide them with a hot, healthy, homemade meal right to their doorstep. We currently deliver to 82 seniors in the West Nashville Area!
With the help of loyal volunteers, seniors can look forward to a visit everyday on any of our six routes we deliver to. For some, it’s the only interaction they will have all day. Our volunteers come back again and again, signing up for regular routes to cultivate relationships with their neighbors.
Our meals are made fresh daily by our partner: The Nashville Food Project. They operate out of our preschool kitchen, making breakfast, lunch, and healthy snack for our kiddos as well!
The Nashville Food Project (TNFP) operates in our community on a multitude of levels. They are almost exclusively volunteer based, using volunteers to make and deliver meals across town. As much as possible, TNFP uses ‘recovered, donated, and garden-grown food’ to whip up the delicious, healthy meals they provide.
Their current campus includes gardens and greenhouses for growing to support their programs, as well as for learning spaces to teach our neighbors in the community how to provide for themselves right from the earth. We love our partnership with the Nashville Food Project! To learn more about their mission and services they provide, visit their website here: www.thenashvillefoodproject.org
