Feeding the Hungry grant addresses food insecurity; supports nutrition education
United Way of Greater Nashville (UWGN) has received $2,000 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation to help nourish neighbors experiencing hunger. The Feeding the Hungry grant supports UWGN’s efforts to unite the community and mobilize resources so that every child, individual and family thrives.
In addition, the grants support community feeding partners by helping neighbors increase their access to nutritious food and providing nutrition education to eliminate health risks for those experiencing food insecurity.
UWGN is uniquely positioned to do this work by bringing individuals, businesses, nonprofits and government to the table to have the tough conversations, mobilize the resources and make the smart investments that will create lasting solutions for the communities most pressing issues.
