Holiday Food Box 2019

Help us deliver 400 Holiday Food Boxes this year.


About Holiday Food Box

NeedLink Nashville has been hosting a Holiday Food Box project since 1912, when local businessmen delivered peach baskets full of food to the shanty towns that then lined the Railroad Gulch and Cumberland River on Christmas Eve.

Last year, NeedLink Nashville, the Nashville Predators, Jackson, and Publix partnered to provide 300 Holiday Food Boxes to families, individuals and seniors in Nashville.

We collect food from local corporate partners such as Publix and Jackson and others and purchase fresh produce from the Second Harvest. We spend a day having the food delivered, sorted and placed into the reusable grocery bags and we deliver them to needy families.

Date & Location

Monday, December 16th, 2019: 8am-Until Our Last Holiday Meal is Delivered!

Fifty Forward Martin Center:
960 Heritage Way
Brentwood, TN 37027

Food is brought to the FiftyForward Martin Center, sorted and placed into the bags. Food is distributed to drivers who drive the bags to local Churches, families, individuals and seniors who have requested a food box to be delivered.

Our goal this year is to provide 400 bags for our Nashville neighbors using 100 community volunteers

Volunteers and Time Needed

Our volunteer goal is 100 friends and neighbors from local partners, churches, and corporate sponsors such as Publix, Jackson, and others. Join us!
