Generous Helpings 2021

6:30 p.m. May 11

Our annual Generous Helpings fundraiser looks a bit different this year, but it’s just as delicious! Some of our favorite Nashville chefs have curated a custom 3-course meal and signature cocktail to benefit Second Harvest.

You can choose to dine-in at Chaatable, Hathorne, or Jasper’s, all with a limited seating layout and social distancing protocols to ensure a safe dining experience. Or if you’re not ready for dine-in, you can opt for carry-out from Sinema.

Ticket includes a prix fixe three-course meal for one person. For those dining at Chaatable, Hathorne, or Jasper’s, the ticket includes one signature cocktail (cash bar also available).

A special thanks to presenting sponsor Kroger, who through its Zero Hunger | Zero Waste plan is helping create communities free of hunger and waste.

Proceeds from Generous Helpings benefit our grocery rescue program, which rescues frozen meat, produce, dairy and non-perishable food items from 280 grocery stores.
