A Real Christmas Gift For A Dollar - 11/08/13
As you head out in the next few weeks to pick up things on your Christmas shopping list, you will almost certainly take meals out you would normally take at home. Let me suggest a few places where you can satisfy your hunger and someone else's at the same time.
Dalts on White Bridge Road, Burger Up on 12th Avenue South and Noshville Deli locations are among more than two dozen Nashville eateries taking part in a program called Street Smart. It invites patrons of participating restaurants to add a dollar to their bills to help feed Nashville's homeless.
The program is an arm of Room In The Inn which sends people with no place else to go Nashville area churches to spend the night. One hundred percent of the money raised by the Street Smart program goes to feed the homeless. The kicker is it's only from November 29-th to December 31-st. Last year, diners contributed nearly twelve thousand dollars.
