We WON! (Seed Money Suppers)

So we got a chance to present at Seed Money Suppers, and won. We are so thrilled that members of the Nashville food community heard our story, and found our idea a worthwhile endeavor. We extend our thank yous to our friends who showed up to support us.

The voting Ballot.

Our competitor was an equally community driven and necessary endeavor. We wish them well as they pursue seed money for their worthwhile journey.

From the Community Food Advocates’ website, Seed Money Suppers is

A once a month dinner event, a gathering of minds, a community driven micro-grant program to build a healthier and more sustainable food system. Each attendee pays $10 for supper and drinks for adults, $5 for children. $8.75 of every $10 is given to the winning presenter, with $1.25 to cover overhead including food and supplies.

 

Our Vision

 

Seed Money Suppers is a little idea with a big mission, to empower the people in our community to engage with our food system to make access to sustainable and healthy food an option for all.

Community Food Advocates has long been part of the policy and direct service aspect of our food system, but there are needs unfilled. The community funded micro-grant model gives us an opportunity to bring the community to the table to help create a real and lasting impact.

 

Nashville’s food system belongs to us all. Everybody Eats is more than a catch phrase to us, it is a reminder that through food we are all connected. Our hope is that we, as a community, will collectively rise to the challenge, find support in each other, and innovate to create new and creative solutions to the issues of hunger and food system work.
