Martina McBride’s TEAM MUSIC IS LOVE Helps Local Nashville Community with a Charity Event at The Fairgrounds Nashville

Martina McBride’s global charity initiative, Team Music Is Love (TMIL), hosted a wildly successful event at The Fairgrounds Nashville on Friday, June 7th
to benefit the local community. This event included a food drive, book
giveaway and storytelling, a diaper giveaway, and an essential item
giveaway, which included items such as tooth brushes and toothpaste.

 

The
Nashville Fairground neighborhood was selected as the location for this
event due to its status as a food desert in Nashville – most people who
live there lack easy access to affordable fruits, vegetables, and whole
grains, as the closest grocery store is a two mile walk away.

 

To help,
TMIL, in partnership with One Gen Away, brought in a truckload of over
20,000 pounds of locally sourced fresh produce and locally saved canned
goods during the food drive, providing approximately 10,000 meals which
will feed 380 families. This incredible feat will surely impact the
local Nashville community given that 1 in 6 adults and 1 in 5 children
in metro Nashville are food insecure – meaning they lack reliable access
to nutritious food and may survive from fast food and convenience
stores.

 

TMIL also
partnered with The Word Wagon to give summer reading books to kids – two
low income Nashville metro schools will receive free books – and
partnered with the Nashville Diaper Bank to give diapers to families in
need.

 

Of course,
this event wouldn’t have been a success without the help of volunteers.
People from 20 different states and 3 different countries showed up to
help give away flowers, balloons, lemonade, and fill grocery carts with
fresh foods and canned good staples.
