Fare Nashville Plan

The plan has 5 major components.

The Fare Nashville Plan is a comprehensive strategy to address food insecurity and hunger throughout Davidson County. By developing a method for county-wide food distribution, widespread garden/green space infrastructure on public land, a central repository for produce to be counted, sorted, and shipped, a monolithic brand under which this food is sold, and a governing body that represents every step in our food system, the Fare Nashville Plan is designed to create a healthy, affordable food ecosystem providing access to all residents of Davidson County. 

Produce Isle

A mobile market and cart program that transports and sells produce and other food items to residents across the county.

Music City Gardens

A plan to embed gardens throughout
the city that will serve as both sources for
produce to be sold and as green spaces for the areas where they are located.

Distribution Center

A central location or repository for cleaning, sorting and distributing food.

Fare Nashville

A brand under which all foods in
this network can be marketed and sold.

Nashville Food System Council

A board of representatives made up of
gardeners, farmers, nonprofit organizations,
government agencies, politicians, vendors, and
distributors that will make collective decisions
regarding Nashville’s food system.
