The Nashville Food Project
Bringing people together to grow, cook and share nourishing food, with the goals of cultivating community and alleviating hunger in our city.
Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Elizabeth Langgle-Martin, Community Engagement Manager at The Nashville Food Project, who highlights their efforts and mission to bring people together to grow, cook and share nourishing food, with the goals of cultivating community and alleviating hunger in our city.
During the interview, Elizabeth talks about their gardens, where they grow organic food intensively and share resources with others interested in growing their own food. She also discusses their food recovery efforts and why that is so important to eliminating food waste and opening access to those who need it. Elizabeth spotlights their kitchens, where they use recovered, donated and garden-grown food to prepare and cook made-from-scratch meals, and then how they share those nourishing meals in partnership with local poverty-disrupting nonprofits and community groups. She also talks about how the community can get involved in supporting their efforts.
