About the Nashville Food Project

The Nashville Food Project (TNFP) 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. TNFP believes that food can be a powerful tool to foster health, belonging and justice in the Nashville community and that is why they focus on three key programs.

  • Grow – TNFP grows organic food intensively in their gardens and shares those resources with others interested in growing their own food.
  • Cook – In TNFP’s kitchens, they use recovered, donated, and garden-grown food to prepare and cook made-from-scratch meals.
  • Share – In the Nashville community, TNFP shares nourishing meals in partnership with local poverty-disrupting nonprofits and community groups.
