ABOUT US

Rise Against Hunger Nashville was founded in 2016 and serves Tennessee, southern Kentucky and northern Alabama. In 2019, more than 7,700 local volunteers and partnering organizations, including Brentwood UMC, Blount Community Church and First Presbyterian Nashville, have helped build the local movement to end global hunger. In this region alone, through 2019, about 4.8 million meals have been packaged to benefit five countries.

Partner Spotlight

Calvary United Methodist Church was instrumental in bringing the hunger movement to the Tennessee area.  The church has hosted events with Rise Against Hunger for five consecutive years, and in 2017, reached 500,000 all-time meals.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are one of the essential resources Rise Against Hunger needs to help realize the vision of a world without hunger. Each year, thousands of volunteers join Rise Against Hunger not only to package meals, but to support local operations and assist with administrative duties. Ready to get started? Please complete our volunteer interest form and we’ll be in touch soon! If you are interested in hosting a meal packaging event, please fill out the form below.
