Hey y'all, I'm in "north" Nashville for a few weeks and am wondering where the good feeds/pantries/dumpsters are at. Dumpsters especially. Am discreet and will not blow up a spot. If you're down to show me, that's awesome, tell me about some places, that's awesome too.

I can't find current info about the Nashville Chapter of Food Not Bombs, but here's what I got from the internet. You can try to write people to confirm the details, but I'm not sure they're still operating. If they are, you can get a free vegan meal.

600 Church St. Nashville, TN (park across from main library downtown"
Some places said Saturday, some Sundays 1:30-2:30pm

When I was there food not bombs was extremely difficult to track down (though multiple people I met assure me they did feeds). We did get our hands on this book and it was quite helpful though: https://www.wttin.org/ The homeless shelter there has hard copies. If you're gonna be there a while it's a good thing to have handy. There were feeds pretty much every day (several days had multiple feeds) and even a place to do laundry that gave out fancy bread from publix. I didn't have much luck with the dumpsters, panhandling, or busking there but the other resources were excellent.

Don't let the cops bite!

*edit* most of these resources are faith based but when I was in contact with them they never pushed it too much (though one feed is followed by an optional sermon/worship session)

*edit 2* the homeless shelter there (specifically the rescue mission) won't allow you to have pocket knives/bladed tools on you or in your bag and there is not place to store your stuff there so I never went to those feeds

Total amount
$60.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
