Bright & Early: Hot ‘N Cold Edition

Good morning, Nashville. As it gets colder, a hot meal takes on a new meaning for many. The Nashville Food Project, an organization that provides bagged lunches to the poor in Nashville, has recently expanded their offerings to include more hot meals. While the sack lunches cost $2.50 per person, the hot meals cost just $0.42 per person and uses food that may have otherwise gone to waste. The meals are then loaded into the organization’s two trucks on Wednesdays and Fridays, and head to serve in smaller low-income neighborhoods that aren’t near downtown or a bus line.
