About

Have a heart to serve meals and feed the street family of Nasville? Then we have a great volunteer opportunities for you!

Every Friday night we go out to the streets of Nashville, under the Jefferson Street bridge and 2nd Street and help feed the homeless community. Feeding runs from 6-7:30pm. All volunteers meet up at Area Command of the Salvation Army at 631 Dickerson Pike at 5:30pm. From there we all caravan over where we setup all the needed items to be distributed. Each week a different group adopts the preparation of the main meal. They will serve from inside the canteen. All others will be out in front passing out drinks, snacks, and picking up trash. Most Important: All volunteers must understand that all though the desire is to have a specific job, it is the heart of the Salvation Army that we meet and know the community that we are serving. We want you to know their names, backgrounds and stories, and if so, then give them a meal. The relationship is the key.This is a great opportunities to not only offer food but also good conversation, let folks know there are others who care! It is to serve, and to be served by our street community.

If you are interested, please feel free to contact the director of volunteer services, Misty Ratcliff, through this site, or by calling 615-416-3175 or emailing her at misty_ratcliff@uss.salvationarmy.org

Look forward to serving with you soon! Blessings!
