Meals 4 Health and Healing has served over 100,000 servings to approximately 1,300 clients in our community. We are committed to educate the Nashville community about proper nutrition, healthy meal options, and provide nutrient-rich meals to patients fighting cancer during a time when eating right can make all the difference.
In the past months, we have instituted COVID-19 specific safety protocols, forged relationships with new farm partners, deepened the work in our own Giving Garden by adding a gardener to our team, provided more nutrition education sessions, hosted two virtual fundraising events, moved our program to a larger kitchen space thanks to Calvary United Methodist Church, and have continued each week to provide 500 nutrient-dense, hearty servings to over 60 clients and caregivers in our community. Whose access to nourishing food has been deeply threatened during this pandemic. We couldn’t fulfill our mission if it weren’t for the dedication of our adult and teen volunteers. They are the heart and soul of the Meals 4 Health and Healing program. Their participation is not only necessary, but they bring a heartfelt passion and enthusiasm for harvesting fresh herbs and vegetables in our garden and for preparing, packaging, and delivering high quality, flavorful, immune-boosting meals.
