St. Philip's is proud to be a member of The Emergency Food Box program that was created to feed hungry individuals and families in Nashville on an urgent-need basis.
An EFB provides two to three days of staple food items based on the number of members in each household. Households needing food assistance may receive three boxes of food within a six-month period.
The Emergency Food Box program relies on food donations from individual, corporate and organizational food drives. The collection barrels at Davidson County Kroger grocery stores and community-wide food drives, such as the Tennessee Titans Food Drive, the Nashville Predators Food Drive and the Letter Carriers' Food Drive, all contribute to the Emergency Food Box program.
