What if I told you I was giving you the chance to eat food from more than 30 restaurants (and that list is growing), for FREE? It's true. This is one of my most favorite annual food events, so keep reading if you want to be eating.
The fine folks at Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee host an annual event that could accurately be called "Wow, That Girl Sure Can Eat," but instead they've cleverly coined it Generous Helpings.
This year's benefit is scheduled for May 16, 5:30 p.m, at the Nashville's Farmers Market, and the lineup of participating restaurants does not disappoint. Attendees will get to sample some of Nashville's finest food, and all proceeds will go to Middle Tennessee's Table, Second Harvest's grocery rescue program. The program rescues and redistributes nearly 5 million pounds of food from more than 200 grocery stores annually including produce, dairy, protein and non-perishable food items.
While this event is all about celebrating Nashville's plentiful restaurant scene, it's important to note that hunger is an issue in Nashville and Second Harvest does great work to combat that. On Monday, April 29, Second Harvest will be among the local hunger advocates at the screening of "A Place At the Table." If you're able, attend, learn & get involved.
Second Harvest generously offered a pair of tickets for me to give away, and well, I'd like for you (yes, you) to win them! To enter, do the following:
