First Cumberland Presbyterian Church Meals 4 Hearts began with sending thousands of meals to Nashville and Cookeville for 12 days following the tornado. Now, Murfreesboro Muslim Youth, Jennifer Vannoy, and First Cumberland Presbyterian Church are extending the program to Murfreesboro by working with local nonprofits and restaurants to deliver hot meals, especially to children and elderly neighbors.
Next week will be the third week of the program in Murfreesboro. Lunches will be handed out drive-thru style at Kittrell Volunteer Fire Department from 12pm until supplies are gone Monday through Friday, March 30-April 3.
Nourish Food Bank on Memorial Boulevard will also distribute meals Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The meals are made possible through donations from the community and from local restaurants Kwik Mart, The Alley, and Al Rayan, Crumbl, Arby's, Chick-fil-A, and McDonald's.
