We're packing bags of food and giving other items in honor of Martin Luther King's impact on America.
Our Walk of Love program serves impoverished children and families in three key ways:
1) Food For School Breaks: An alarming number of students rely on school breakfast and lunch to feed their hungry tummies. For all five major school breaks (Fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring and Summer) we provide meals for children and families in entire communities. We bring in semi-trucks with tons of food and other necessities. Through the help of dozens of volunteers, we carry the boxes of food and personal items directly to the homes. Just in the neighborhood where our community center is located, we feed 3,000 people per school break. Our Walk of Love Initiative is to feed every child during their school breaks in Nashville’s Housing Authority by the end of 2020.

2) Weekly Fresh Food Truck: Each Saturday we receive fresh food from area organic grocers such as Whole Foods, Panera Bread and Fresh Market. Volunteers unload food from the truck into our center. The food is organized on tables. Then residents and homeless people shop for food free of charge. Volunteers arrive at our community center at 10:00 am at Napier Place Apartments, 648 Claiborne St., Nashville, TN. We are located in the back of the management office building.
3) Pack & Deliver: Once or twice per month, we invite volunteers to join in a fun experience of packing 400 to 800 bags of food, personal hygiene items and other necessities. We also receive boxes of necessities already packed. Volunteers deliver the bags or boxes to every home in the community. Volunteers can choose to only pack bags, only deliver bags or both pack and deliver.
