This volunteering day is to help the Nashville Food Project with Meal prep. For Meal Prep you can expect to do varied tasks ranging from preparing garden salads, fruit salads and desserts. Please also have everyone wear close-toed shoes and be prepared to have fun! The Hillsboro Kitchen is located at our office (3605 Hillsboro Pike, 37215). We are located next to Woodmont Christian Church in a small white building right next door. You will should see the silver Nashville Food Project food trucks out front.

If you are interested in volunteering on this day please email Reeta Bandyopadhyay at In your message please include your name, email address, phone number, and whether you have Whatsapp. Spaces are limited! I will be making a list and a waiting list if we have more people interested than there is space for. A week before the event I will give all full details.

Finally, I am very pleased to announce that we have begun a BAGN Marketplace. The purpose of this group is to donate items for sale. This group is closed, but anyone can join! Please invite people to join this group. The link to this group is below. All items are donated and all proceeds will be given to BAGN via the PayPal account.

Thank you all so much for your support!
