National Nutrition Month Volunteer Opportunities


Dear NAND Members,

NAND will be hosting two events this year in honor of National Nutrition month: Sorting canned goods with Second Harvest on Saturday March 18th from 9-12pm and Gardening with the Nashville Food Project on Saturday March 25th from 9-11am. Please sign up for the event(s) in which you are interested! Not only will we be helping out the community, but this will be a great way to network with other NAND and community partners. If you have any questions, please contact Collette Powers at Feel free to share this event with other RDs who are not NAND members, but who are interested in learning more about our organization. We have 50 slots to fill for Second Harvest. The Nashville Food Project event (our most popular event) will be capped at 15 slots and NAND members will be given priority so don’t wait to sign up!

Volunteer Opportunities—The Heimerdinger Foundation


The Heimerdinger Foundation prepares nutrient-rich meals for people fighting cancer and seeks to educate the community about proper nutrition. They are currently in need of volunteers for their Meals 4 Health & Healing program. Volunteers can help prepare meals in their kitchen, deliver meals to clients, and serve as client liaisons.

If you are interested in volunteering, contact Natisha Moultry at
