Nashville, TN (September 30, 2019) Local Nashville chefs are teaming up for the inaugural Nashville Gathers on Saturday, November 2 to celebrate and give back to the Nashville community.

The Nashville Food Project brings people together to grow, cook and share nourishing food, with the goals of cultivating community and alleviating hunger in Nashville. Each week, The Nashville Food Project shares more than 5,500 meals to those in need. Meals are made with organically grown produce from The Nashville Food Project farm as well as food donated from locals farms, grocers and restaurants. The Nashville Food Project also stewards several urban community gardens across the city, providing land, tools, and training for families who want to grow food for themselves and for the market.
Trey Cioccia, owner of Black Rabbit and a Nashville native himself, wanted to partner with other original Nashville chefs to honor the community within the Nashville restaurant industry. “I wanted to put an event together that not only showed the great people of Nashville who we are, but what we are and how much we care about our community. This event showcases all the individuals that risked, sweated, sacrificed, and built this part of Nashville through hard work and giving back to the city that has always supported us,” says Cioccia. Many of the chefs featured at Nashville Gathers helped shape the food and beverage scene of Nashville. Participating restaurants include Black Rabbit, The Farm House, Lockeland Table, Pegleg Porker, Thai Esane, Nicky’s Coal Fired, Arnold’s Country Kitchen, Greko Greek Street Food and Funk Seoul Brother.
