Feeding the Hungry

Due to the COVID19 pandemic we at the Thursday Night Community Meal have decided to suspend operations until further notice.  We are all heartbroken at not being able to be with our friends and neighbors, but cannot think of a safe way of doing so.    Sincerely,  Tom Leis

At the Thursday Night Community Meals at St. Johns UMC, we host a free nutritious meal in a safe, friendly, and caring environment to a diverse group of clients at-risk of hunger and some who are suffering from homelessness. Most of the diners live along the West Nashville corridor and Charlotte Avenue, although some regularly travel across town from other neighborhoods.
 
Volunteers help with last minute preparations, serve the meal, help clean up and hopefully, chat with our guests.
 
Please wear comfortable, casual clothing.

In accordance with Mayor John Cooper’s Roadmap for Reopening Nashville, Hands On Nashville recommends the following guidelines for volunteering:  

  • Individuals belonging to the following groups should not volunteer for in-person opportunities: ages 65 and up, those with elevated health risk or compromised immune systems, anyone who is feeling unwell (or who has been exposed to/is caring for someone who is sick or has a compromised immune system). 

  • Volunteers who attend projects should take recommended precautions, including maintaining distances between themselves and other people; practicing hand-washing and sanitation of spaces; wearing gloves, masks, and other protective gear; etc. As always, consult a medical professional should you begin to feel unwell at any point during or after a project. 

If you decide not to attend a project, please log in to hon.org and remove yourself from the opportunity ahead of time so that another volunteer may have a chance to fill your slot. If you have any trouble with this, email hon@hon.org and we’ll be happy to help! 

Please be aware that your project may be canceled with short notice. Projects are subject to change depending on shifting guidelines and circumstances. We appreciate your understanding.
