Give Away: Two Tickets to May 15, 2014 Generous Helpings at the Nashville Farmer’s Market

A few years ago I wrote about Generous Helpings, a food and beverage tasting event  which benefits the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and Middle Tennessee’s Table.

Held at the Farmer’s Market, over 27 food vendors will be participating and giving out their best sips and bites.

Generous Helpings is my favorite tasting event, near and dear to my heart, as it was the first food event  I ever attended in Nashville. In one quick night, I was able to capture the spirit of Nashville food’s scene. Not just because the participants bring more than enough food to make everyone happy, but also the spirit behind it. I often feel over blessed in the food department and never want to take this blessing for granted.

Restaurants, artisans, wineries, distilleries, come prepared to show off their bounty and support an admirable cause. Last year Second Harvest fed people in 46 counties in Middle and West Tennessee, distributing nearly 24 million pounds of food including 5 million pounds of fresh produce.

Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door, worth every penny, and for a good cause.
